The England and Wales Cricket Board said Tuesday it and the Bangladesh Cricket Board mutually decided to reschedule the tour, which includes three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 matches.

Although the statement gave no reason for the postponement, England media said COVID-19-related quarantine protocols were behind the rescheduling.

It also added that it would give England players an opportunity to be drafted by teams in the lucrative Indian Premier League scheduled for around the same time.

England's top players are preparing for the first test against India at Trent Bridge which begins on Wednesday.

The teams are set for a five-test series also including matches at Lord’s, Headingley and the Oval before concluding with a match at Old Trafford in Manchester from Sept. 10.
