“We have postponed those two matches for the time being,” BCB president Nazmul Hasan said on Wednesday (March 11). “We are having problem hosting the matches on 21 and 22 and so we have deferred it. There is no guarantee that everyone can come and play here so we have decided that both the concert and the two matches are deferred. Lot of restrictions are coming in from different quarters. We will host it after few months when the time is appropriate,” he added.
