Australia-Bangladesh Test series may be rescheduled for IPL
Melbourne: Australia’s Test series in Bangladesh in April next year is likely to be rescheduled as it is clashing with the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League, according to reports.
Australia is scheduled to tour Bangladesh for two Tests in April, after next year’s Cricket World Cup, the same time when the fourth IPL will be held.
According to Foxsports, the Test series would either be scrapped or rescheduled.
Australia will take on England in the five-match Ashes series starting November 26 followed by a one-day series, before heading to the subcontinent to play in the World Cup.
Scrapping or postponement of the Bangladesh series would allow Australia’s players to play in the IPL but after a gruelling season some of the high-profile stars, including Mitchell Johnson are likely to stay out of the Bangladesh series, the report said quoting ICC sources.
All the IPL players will go under the hammer in January for IPL IV.
