Bangladesh cricket team are set to travel to Sri Lanka for the series in April, following just a five-day break after the New Zealand series.

Bangladesh Cricket Board CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury said the board is in discussion with Sri Lanka Cricket over the upcoming series and will soon reach a common ground.

The discussion also involves the terms of the Covid-19 protocol to which Bangladesh previously had observations, which led to them not visiting the island and the series getting postponed.
“We are yet to confirm the two venues but they have already suggested us two options. We have also discussed about the initial camp that we will have there and also where we will do the quarantine. We have shared some of our observations with them. Hopefully we will get a reply from them soon,” said Nizamuddin to the media Monday.
Bangladesh were initially scheduled to play three Tests in July 2020 in the island but got consumed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Subsequently, the tour was rescheduled with the first Test slated to start from October 24, but BCB thereon asked SLC to reschedule the tour as it was not willing to comply with the 14-day quarantine requirement mandated by the home board.
