Bangladesh to confirm Pakistan tour within two weeks
Following a successful staging of ODI and T20I games against Sri Lanka, Pakistan is hopeful to host more teams in future. For this reason, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) earlier contacted Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to visit the country for their next series.
The tour which consists of two Tests and three ODIs is scheduled to be played in February 2020. However, Bangladesh is yet to confirm travelling to Pakistan as security conditions still emerge as a major debatable topic.
BCB operations committee chairman Akram Khan cleared that the governing body of Bangladesh cricket is yet to decide about touring Pakistan. He further highlighted the role of government in this regard.
“Our board president (Nazmul Hasan) has always considered security as our top priority. So, we have this element in mind. However, it isn’t just the decision of the board. We haven’t finalized anything about playing Pakistan in Dubai or Pakistan. The discussions are still ongoing,” Akram Khan said on reflecting on the tour of Pakistan.
