Bangladesh Refuse to Play Test Series in Pakistan: BCB chief Nazmul Hassan

Bangladesh Refuse to Play Test Series in Pakistan: Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan on Sunday confirms that the men’s cricket team will not tour Pakistan for the two-match Test series due to security concerns. They can play just T20Is in their side’s upcoming tour of Pakistan.

The decision was taken during a board meeting which took place on January 12. Hassan revealed that they can just play the shortest International format in their upcoming tour as per their government’s advice.

Recently, Bangladesh wanted to play three T20s in Pakistan and then decide on the Tests after assessing the security situation. But now the Bangladesh government has intervened in the matter and advised the cricket team to just play the T20Is in Pakistan.

“According to Bangladesh government advice, they can only play 20-20 match in Pakistan. There is no chance to play a Test match in Pakistan right now,” Nazmul Hassan was quoted as saying by Pakistani media.

Test cricket returned to Pakistan for the first time in ten years with the Sri Lankan team playing two matches in Rawalpindi and Karachi, with the hosts winning the second match to clinch the series 1-0 after the rain-curtailed first game ended in a draw.

They even proposed Bangladesh to play a day-night Test in Karachi. However, the offer was rejected and Bangladesh will tour Pakistan for just T20I series.
