Default BD bid for Aus vs Pak series in BD

Have you seen BBC sports? I was fearing this. Bangladesh has bid for the Pakistan vs Australia test series to be held in Bangladesh given that Australia does not agree to go to Pakistan in October.

My fear is this that it will hamper with our domestic calender. At the moment, 6 Premier Division clubs are supposed to play 3-day domestic matches from October 1 to 30.

If this goes on, then we will need 3 stadiums - Dhaka Bangabandhu stadium, Chittagong MA Aziz stadium and one extra stadium which never held any test match before. We will need these stadiums to prepare for the test series.

Then the 6 premier division clubs will have to play in BKSP, in Fatullah of Narayanganj, in Dhanmondi club ground and in any other low-rated ground.

This will be a total disaster - the clubs might not want to play the 3-day games at all.
