BCB considers ZCA’s requestStaff Correspondent
The Bangladesh Cricket Board is considering Zimbabwe Cricket Association’s request of accommodating them with two practice matches before they take the field for ICC World Twenty20, said officials on Monday.
ZCA had asked BCB to arrange the games against the Tigers which they want to play before reaching Sri Lanka for the World T20.
But the national team would be unavailable as they will be away playing against Trinidad and Tobago at that time, arranged by the Board as their last preparation, thus accommodating Zimbabwe won’t be possible.
However, BCB is thinking of giving the Zimbabweans a chance to get themselves accustomed with the sub-continent conditions by providing them matches against the Bangladesh ‘A’ team.
‘They (ZCA) had requested us and we are thinking of that can be arranged,’ Nizamuddin Chowdhury, acting chief executive officer of BCB, told New Age on Monday.
‘The national team will be out of the country so practice matches with them are out of question. But we have a got a good bilateral relationship with them and due to that we are considering their request.
‘We are seeing whether two games against the second string Bangladesh team can be arranged. Though nothing is final yet and the decision will be taken in the next board meeting,’ he added.
