“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.
The BCB had already announced to separate squads for Asia XI and World XI after confirming participation from some leading cricketers.
Not only Bangladesh Cricket Board, BCCI too gets in discussion about the execution of IPL. Cash-rich Indian Premier League has been scheduled to start from March 29 with its opening match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings in Mumbai.
In advance to prevent the spread of Corona virus, Karnataka Government has also denied hosting the IPL matches. And also written a letter to the central government requesting for the postponement of the IPL. Earlier, the Maharashtra government also raised its concerns regarding the scheduling of the IPL. Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope had revealed that he believes that the IPL can be organised later.
