The year 2020 shook the world in unimaginable ways. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic reduced the no of cricketing activities to a minimum, and those which happened took place inside a strict bio-secure bubble. Many countries couldn’t indulge in a single international series post worldwide lockdown in March 2020, and Bangladesh was one of them. The Bangladesh cricket team couldn’t play any cricket after March 2020 and are desperately waiting for cricket action to resume for them.
The nation also waited for the action as their star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was also set to mark his comeback after serving a year ban. He was banned by ICC for breaching the norms of ICC’s anti-corruption code. In the latest turn of events, Bangladesh’s full schedule for 2021 has been announced and the nation will get to play a good amount of international cricket in the year. Their first series in 2021 will kick off in January only against West Indies.
