Bangladesh postpone SA women’s tour
Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan has confirmed that South Africa's women's tour to the Asian country has been postponed due to security concerns.
The announcement comes in the wake of Australia's two-match Test tour being cancelled after the Australia government advised the squad not to go to Bangladesh because of a 'threat against Australians'.
South Africa's women's side were due to play five ODIs and three T20s later in October but the matches will be rescheduled to a later date.
Hassan said: "They [CSA] had wanted a security report but we thought it would be better to speak face to face in Dubai during the ICC meeting. I think the terror alerts would be taken off by the next five-seven days.
"We also need to know what type of security plan they have in mind. Since both these teams are mostly free, it won't be a major problem to delay this series by a few days.
"To make sure they don't have a negative view, we need to sit with them rather than exchange emails. The series is temporarily postponed by mutual consent. They are not coming on October 15, and I think they will come a little later.
"We have to find a solution to play even when there are threats."
