Australia’s tour of Bangladesh appears increasingly in danger of being cancelled, with Cricket Australia’s security team on their way home to brief players and the board following a series of meetings in Bangladesh over the past two days.
The Australian team has still not departed for Bangladesh and the danger of test series being cancelled has increased in past few days. Australian team is hesitant because of the possible militant attack threat in some parts of Bangladesh in late September.
The BCB on Monday expressed its confidence that the series would go ahead as scheduled, and also named a squad for the first Test in Chittagong. The first Test is scheduled to start on October 9, with the second Test due to begin in Dhaka on October 17.
Security team will speak to officials today in Australia and a final decision will be reached after that.
Stay tuned. We will keep you updated about the situation.
