Awami League (AL) lawmaker Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh yesterday evoked the authorities concerned to cancel Bangladesh Cricket Team’s Sri Lanka tour, reports the daily sun.
He said, “The BCB shouldn’t put the life of our Tigers at risk or in jeopardy. I rebuke all the concerned to take essential action.”
Through a post on his verified Facebook page, he made the remarks.
The AL lawmaker said, “In April 2019, several innocent people including my nephew Zayyan Chowdhury were killed in terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka. Since then there have been many attacks on Muslims in Sri Lanka.”
Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh also claimed that the law and order situation in Sri Lanka is still very vulnerable. So, in this situation, BCB should not allow Bangladeshi cricketers to visit Sri Lanka.
Team Tigers are scheduled to set for Sri Lanka on today (July 20).
In the Sri Lanka tour, Bangladesh will play three ODIs-on July 26, 28 and 31 all in Colombo after a practice match on July 23.
