Australia will not be sending any team for the youth T20 world cup which is essentially an under 19 world cup. Once again they have stated that this is due to security issues and thus they can not take the risk in this situation.
They also forfeit a test series with Bangladesh in the recent past which was supposed to held last year. But they said they can not come due to security issues with Bangladesh. They also sent an agent to confirm the situation and now they have spoken out on how they are not satisfied with the security and they wont be participating this time around.
They said that this was a very hard decision for them and they thought it over many times but as things are right now, they can not go to Bangladesh. They also said that this threat is not only towards the cricket team but rather the Australian people and they will be asking their government to take back the high council and make the safety of the people their top priority.

However, its BCB that is in charge of these things, its ICC and they are assuring that there can be no possible harm here for any sort if players. Not only that, few other international teams have played in Bangladesh during the last year and that goes not only for cricket but on other teams as well. Even in this time, no other team said anything about not sending a team but the question is why Australia? Why they keep refusing to play in Bangladesh? The answer is still unknown. Keep up with us to know more about this.
