Bangladesh A’s tour of Afghanistan has been postponed as Afghan Board is suffering from some internal issues, according to Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) CEO. 

Mohammad Mithun-led side were supposed to play two four-day and three one-day games in the UAE. However, the host nation has decided to step away from arranging the series. 

BCB Chief Executive Nizam Uddin Chowdhury told the media on Sunday that they are trying to organize something alternative at this time.

“We had a proposal from the Afghanistan Cricket Board. We had an 'A' team program in October. It was supposed to be in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. But more recently Afghanistan Cricket Board told us that they want to reschedule. So we have to reschedule the 'A' team in October" Nizam Uddin said.

Bangladesh A last toured West Indies for a two four-dayers and three one-day matches in July. As per the schedule, they were set to host India following the Afghan tour. 

Along with Mithun, former Test captain Mominul Haque, Tamim Iqbal, Shadman Islam, Soumya Sarkar and Saif Hassan are the other big names in the A squad.

National team coach Russell Domingo was supposed to be with the team too.

The cricketers will start preparing for the National Cricket League (NCL) starting from October 10 as the series against Afghanistan has been delayed.
