- (Source: AP)Australia will not be hosting Bangladesh later this year due to financial reasons while arguing that it doesn’t make sense to play top-end matches out of the season because they clash with football in the country.
- The series slated to be Bangladesh’s first tour down under since 2003 had Australia playing two Tests and three Tests in August and September.
- But the trip has been cancelled after Australia’s free-to-air broadcasters are reported to be uninterested in televising the series in the middle of the football season.
- CA chief executive James Sutherland explained further that besides India, England and South Africa, rest of the countries only play Australia occasionally and only during the summer in the southern hemisphere.
