Bangladesh move India ODI from Dhaka over protest threat | Cricket

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has moved an ODI from the upcoming series against India outside Dhaka. The decision was taken in response to a protest that could paralyze the capital on the same day.

Team India will travel to Bangladesh next week for their first tour to the country since 2015. The action kicks off with a three-match ODI series originally scheduled to take place in Dhaka. However, following the latest announcement, the final ODI, due to be played on December 10, has been moved to Chattogram.

The change of venue will allow the process to run smoothly as the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has announced a rally on the same day and hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take to the streets of Dhaka.

However, Jalal declined to comment if the change was made at the last minute to avoid the collision, but a report by newspaper New time said the move was made to avoid the rally.
