England tour of Bangladesh postponed, to be played in March 2023

England’s white-ball trip to Bangladesh has been rescheduled until March 2023, according to the ECB and BCB. The visit, which will include both ODIs and T20Is, was originally scheduled for September-October this year, just ahead of the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

On Tuesday morning, both the ECB and the BCB issued comments to that effect, stating that the series had been “mutually resolved” to be rescheduled. “The tour is scheduled for the first two weeks of March 2023, with three ODIs and three T20Is scheduled in Dhaka and Chattogram,” according to the statements.

England’s finest players are ready for the first test against India, which starts on Wednesday at Trent Bridge. The teams will play a five-test series that will include matches at Lord’s, Headingley, and the Oval before ending on September 10 at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Moeen Ali and Sam Curran (Chennai Super Kings), Sam Billings, Tom Curran, and Chris Woakes (Delhi Capitals), Eoin Morgan (Kolkata Knight Riders), Chris Jordan and Dawid Malan (Punjab Kings), Jos Buttler (Rajasthan Royals), and Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy (Rajasthan Royals) are among the England cricketers expected to join their IPL squad (Sunrisers Hyderabad). In addition to Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes, and Liam Livingstone, the Royals had Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes, and Liam Livingstone in their ranks at the start of the season, but all of them were withdrawn for various reasons during the first leg in April-May. The only Bangladeshis in the IPL are Shakib Al Hasan (Knight Riders) and Mustafizur Rahman (Royals).

Bangladesh will play Australia in a five-match T20I series at home today, the first bilateral T20I series between the two countries, and are also poised to host New Zealand before the T20 World Cup.
