Bangladesh and Australia are facing each other for the first time in a bilateral T20 series. In the Covid-19 situation, the BCB has had to take a number of additional steps to ensure an environment of biological protection with a quarantine period in line with Cricket Australia’s demands. This includes not having a television camera in the field. No match in this series can be seen live from Australia!
The home broadcast of the Bangladesh team is owned by an organization called Bantech. The matches of the five-match T20 series in Bangladesh will be telecast live on T-Sports, Gazi TV and Bangladesh Television. However, it is learned that so far no Australian broadcaster or television has expressed interest in showing the matches of the series. BCB chief executive Nizam Uddin Chowdhury also said, “As far as I know, the right to show the game has not been sold to anyone in Australia yet.”
Fox Sports and Seven West Media have contracts with Cricket Australia to broadcast their home series. The latest Australian series against the West Indies was broadcast by Fox Sports in that country. However, they will not show the matches against Bangladesh. According to Fox’s TV guide on Sunday, they will only broadcast England-India Test, West Indies-Pakistan series and The Hundred during the Australian series with Bangladesh.
This is the first time since 2017 that the Australian team has visited Bangladesh. The last time they played two Tests. From August 3 to 9, they will play five matches in these seven days. Australia wants to finish the series as soon as possible and return home.
