Bangladesh stick to Sri Lanka tour despite lockdown

Bangladesh will start a two-Test tour of Sri Lanka this month despite renewed coronavirus restrictions at home, Sri Lankan cricket chief Arjuna de Silva said Wednesday.

Bangladesh ordered a one-week nationwide lockdown on Monday amid a record surge in infections but de Silva said the matches had been confirmed.

“The Bangladesh board has told us that they will go ahead with the tour as planned,” de Silva said, adding that all Bangladesh squad members had been vaccinated against the virus.
