Bangladesh are only coming for 1 test now plus the 3 ODIs and 3 T20s.
Unfortunate if true. :(

Don't blame them. They're probably seeing this and thinking "not as competitive as we hoped"

Bulk of the wickets have been gotten by Afridi and Hassan. Taskin seems good bowler but he is mot as good as Afridi and Hassan is. So expecting better performance with the likes of Willams ervine burl coming back to team too.

Confirmed it's literally a finance/funding issue but okay. It fits your agenda though so thats cool.

That sucks. One off Tests barely allow any time to build a storyline. Better than no Test I guess.

Lets wait for an official confirmation.

Bro, learn to take some light hearted banter. I'm not out here fighting a certain agenda.

Didn’t hear anything from BCB or BD media about the reduction of tests. We feel Zim as good opponent on their backyard. I am a Bangladeshi, plus love zim cricket. 2 tests will be great if Zim can afford.

The women's team is gonna play 5 one day games against a South Africa Emerging team in Bulawayo. I'm not too well versed on the tour arrangement side of cricket but what's stopping us doing something like that for the senior men's team, playing some games against a SA emerging team or even a Namibia, Kenya type team? Is there a legitimate reason why this isn't feasible or is it just ZC being ZC? I see only positives for both sides, we get the lads into good nick and they get some cricket against a Test playing nation.

Money. I expect SA are funding that women's series almost entirely. It'd have to be on a similar basis for the mens team presumably, especially as it wouldn't have official status/ICC funding against an 'SA emerging' side.


Really good news for the womens side though!
