All the matches of the ODI series were proposed in Dhaka. But now the Bangladesh Cricket Board has shifted the third ODI to be held on 10 December.

The ODI series between the two countries will start from December 4. India will enter the ODI series with full strength. 

Match shifted due to rally

Actually, Bangladesh Nationalist Party will organize a rally in Dhaka on 10th December. In which hundreds of thousands of people are expected to come on the streets of Dhaka. This will turn the city into a crowd. Keeping this in mind, the Bangladesh Cricket Board decided to shift the third match to be played in Dhaka to Chittagong. The BNP has held several major demonstrations across the country since last month in an effort to force the resignation of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government. 

A test match was proposed in Chittagong

Chittagong was scheduled to host a Test match, said Jalal Yunus, Bangladesh Cricket Board’s chief of operations, while speaking to news agency AFFI on Wednesday. We felt that there should also be an ODI match here. Jalal declined to comment on whether the venue was changed late in view of the protests. And according to Bangladesh newspaper New Age, an unnamed official of the Bangladesh Cricket Board had decided to shift the match to avoid the rally.
