ODI to Help Compensate for PCB’s Financial Loss

On Tuesday, PCB and BCB have come to a conclusion to have 2 Tests, 3 T20Is and an ODI for the upcoming Bangladesh Tour of Pakistan. 

Yesterday, the Bangladesh Cricket Board President, Nazmul Hasan said that the reason behind their decision to include a one-off ODI was to help with Pakistan’s financial problems for hosting Bangladesh. 

The BCB chief disclosed that PCB wanted an additional T20I in the third leg of the tour, but Bangladesh wanted it to instead be an ODI. They thought it would be better practice prior to the Test. 

In an interview, Nazmul said, ‘Pakistan is facing a huge financial loss (for hosting us on three occasions) and they offered us to play one T20 (ahead of Test) as that will give them some revenue. Their cost has increased a lot as we are going three times and in this little time they cannot do marketing’.

He continued, ‘We needed practice match and we felt that if we played ODI than we can practice more (and they could also generate some revenue)’.

After a long discussion, the two cricket boards were able to make a decision last Tuesday. This was mostly due to the Bangladesh government not wanting to clear a long tour of Pakistan. 

Now, Pakistan and Bangladesh are set for 2 Tests, 3 T20Is, an ODI that will happen from January 24 to 27.
