But since we’re yet to get confirmation from Sri Lanka about what we’ve asked them to fulfill.

BCB boss Nazmul Hassan on September 14 told the media that they are waiting for Sri Lanka’s response.
“Both boards are committed to continuing with the series as it’s a part of the ongoing World Test Championship. If any further adjustment is required we’ll do that.
