Dhaka: The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Monday said that Australia’s two-Test series against Bangladesh, which is part of the World Test Championship, has been postponed to June-July 2020.

“According to the Future Tours Programme [FTP], we were supposed to host two Tests in February, but now the Test series will be played in June-July 2020,” BCB cricket operations Chairman Akram Khan told reporters, as quoted by Cricbuzz.

Khan also informed that Australia’s tour of Bangladesh for a T20I series, which was slated to be held in October this year, will now take place in 2021 ahead of the eighth edition of the T20 World Cup which will be held in India.

“Initially, we were expecting to host Australia for a two-match Twenty20 International series in October, but now they have agreed to play three T20Is which will be played ahead of the World T20 in India, though we are yet to finalise the dates,” Khan said.
