South Africa women’s cricket team will arrive for their home series against Bangladesh on November 3, Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan confirmed on Wednesday.
The South Africa women’s team was scheduled to arrive on October 15 to play five one-day internationals and three Twenty20 internationals. But they postponed tour in the wake of Australian cricket team’s decision to call off their two-match Test series in Bangladesh after official warnings that militants may attack Western interests here.
During the sideline of recent International Cricket Council meeting in Dubai, the BCB could convince Cricket South Africa that the security situation in Bangladesh is not as grave as it has been portrayed.
South Africa as a result wanted a revised schedule which the BCB sent duly. According to the revised itinerary South Africa women’s team was supposed to arrive on October 28, but a fresh travel alert by Westerners prompted them to delay their new arrival date.
The BCB on Wednesday also announced the itinerary of Zimbabwe cricket team, who will be arriving on November 2 to play three one-day internationals and two Twenty20 internationals.
