BCB Receives Clearance Only for T20Is in Pakistan

Pakistan and Bangladesh will only have a three-match T20I series due to the current situation in the Middle East.

Nazmul Hasan, the President of the Bangladesh Cricket Board said in an interview last Sunday that the team is ready to play three Twenty20 Internationals against Pakistan. The government only allowed three T20Is due to the ongoing unrest in the Middle East. 

The President of BCB had a four-hour board meeting at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium to decide on their upcoming tour of Pakistan. Nazmul Hasan said they have already made a verbal decision, and will soon send out an official letter regarding the conclusion. 

The Pakistan Cricket board suggested a two-match Test series and another three-match T20I series after. Beforehand, PCB said that they won’t host the home series anywhere else after the BCB suggested to separate the series since they don’t want players to stay in Pakistan any longer. 

The BCB are suspicious about the current events in the Middle East. This also ruled out any likelihood of Bangladesh playing the Test series in the UAE. 

Nazmul said in an interview, ‘Considering the recent unrest that is prevailing in the Middle East we can only have a short trip to Pakistan and so we decided to play only three T20 matches during our first visit to Pakistan’. 

He continued, ‘We will play the Test series against Pakistan at some other point of time when everything gets ok in the middle-east region. It was a difficult decision to tour Pakistan considering everything but still we decided to go there now only to prove that we want resumption of international cricket in Pakistan’.
