Both countries were set to play in two Tests, three ODIs, and three T20Is after the ICC T20 World Cup.

Recently Shahriar Nafees, Head of BCB's cricket operations, stated that Bangladesh was reluctant to play the series against Afghanistan in July due to anticipated rainfall in Greater Noida. Nafees further confirmed that BCB granted NOCs to players to participate in franchise-based T20 tournaments.

He said, "We were not prepared to play the series against Afghanistan in July because, according to weather reports, there will be rain in Greater Noida at that time.  After both boards agreed to reschedule the series to a more convenient time, we decided to issue NOCs to our players upon their request. When they learned that the white-ball series against Afghanistan in July was off, they decided to apply for NOCs to participate in various franchise-based T20 tournaments."
