BCB wants to play five T20Is instead of five ODIs

Bangladesh cricket board is now keen on playing five T20 internationals against Ireland as the preparation for the upcoming ICC World T20 that will be held in Sri Lanka in September. However, according to the earlier planned schedule they were supposed to play five ODI matches in their trip to Ireland in late July.
This change of plan has been revealed by Jalal Yunus, the BCB media committee chairman, yesterday after the emergency meeting of the board of directors at the BCB headquarters in Mirpur.
No doubt, it is a very good decision as it will help the Bangladeshi players to be prepared for the ICC World T20. But the question is that if it is possible for them to arrange T20 series.
Jalal Yunus said that if they did not agree to host the T20 series then they will play the series at a suitable time after the World Cup.
ICC World T20 is not very far. This time it will be organized by Sri Lanka in September.
There is some good news for domestic players. The Dhaka Premier Division Cricket Super League is going to start again on May 31 after a two-month suspension after the board has approved the president’s decision.
