Bangladesh cricket authorities said Saturday they are unlikely to proceed with a planned tour to Sri Lanka in July citing fears that the country could be hit by another attack after last month's devastating Easter bombings.
Bangladesh's one-day international series in Sri Lanka was scheduled to take place in July, having been brought forward from December.
"There is only one problem about Sri Lanka: the kind of situation is there, there's no question of going there. Not only Bangladesh, I don't think any team will play there," Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan told reporters in Dhaka.
"If the situation calms down, they assure us and our security team gives clearance, we will see. At the moment we don't have any plan to go there," he added.
Bangladesh's players and officials came within 50 metres (yards) of the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch in March before a suspected white supremacist began indiscriminately shooting Muslim worshippers.
They were in the city to play a Test match, which was promptly cancelled.
