BCB Increase Number of T20s in Zimbabwe Tour 2021
BCB increase the number of T20s in the upcoming Zimbabwe Tour 2021 in June-July. Bangladesh will play an additional T20 by reducing one Test in the Zimbabwe tour. The proposal of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is to deal with the stress of the game. Zimbabwe cricket has also welcomed it.
The Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League (DPL) starts on May 31 after the ongoing Sri Lanka series. Then the series against Australia and New Zealand at home shortly after the end of the Zimbabwe series in the last week of June.
With these considerations, the BCB has reduced the number of Tests to two in Zimbabwe. According to the schedule, there were two T20s, but now it has increased to three. However, there are three matches in the ODI series as before.
“Our schedule is very busy at the moment,” Akram Khan, head of the BCB’s cricket management division, told reporters in Mirpur today (May 25). Club cricket will start after our series. Then for a period of time, I reduced one Test from Zimbabwe and increased one T20. Then after returning from Zimbabwe, we have Australia, New Zealand series.
‘Then we have to look at the issue of cricketers being in the biosecurity zone. Everything has to be considered together. Extra play but not good. We are thinking about all this. I will think about this after this series.
