Australia have accepted to play five T20Is instead of 3 T20s as they were planned to play on their actual tour of Bangladesh in August,BCB Ops Chairman Akram Khan said.

“As you may have known, Australia have agreed to increase their T20I series from three to five matches,” Akram Khan told on Tuesday. “It will be held over eight or nine days. We are trying to be well prepared for the World Cup T20.


“There were also two Tests against Zimbabwe, so BCB reduced it and added an extra T20 in that place. I am however not aware of how long the quarantine in Zimbabwe is going to be, but it won’t be too that difficult.”

Akram khan also told that Bangladesh won’t have any space to plan further international series in the place of postponed Asia cup.Bangladesh’s cricketers will now focus on playing the Dhaka Premier League.

“We have a pretty packed scheduled. We will have club cricket after this (Sri Lanka) series. We will go to Zimbabwe, and afterwards we have Australia and New Zealand coming up. We also have to keep the cricketers’ bio-bubble and quarantine in mind. It is not always good to play a lot of cricket, so we have to think about our schedule after this series.”
