Bangladesh-Australia five-match T20I series is set to start from August 3 as both team will arrive in Dhaka from the West Indies and Zimbabwe respectively on 29th July after finishing their ongoing series. Australia are due to board a charter airplane from the Caribbean to visit Dhaka.
In Bangladesh, Covid-19 cases have been on the rise, prompting the authorities to declare a nationwide lockdown beginning July 23.
Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood said the players, who play two more one-day internationals in the West Indies, had been informed of the situation they were set to head into for five T20 games and were comfortable with the arrangements as presented to them.
“We’ve had a few meetings about what it’s going to look like in Bangladesh, it’s obviously going to be quite tight restrictions within the bubble,” Hazlewood said from Barbados.
“I think it’s going to be purely at the hotel, or the cricket ground, which we have done before and we are used to. It’s quite a short trip as well, which is good. I think it will be no dramas and we will get that done on the back end of this tour” he added.
According to the schedule, the second match of the series will be on August 4. Then there is a break on 5 August. The last three T20s will be on August 6,7 and 9.
