PCB chairman Ehsan Mani to meet Bangladesh cricket chief in Dubai

PCB chairman Ehsan Mani to meet Bangladesh cricket chief in Dubai”

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has remained firm on their stance of sending their national side to Pakistan only for the three-match Twenty20 global series and not for a bilateral Test series.

In a latest development, the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Mr Ehsan Mani has said they will meet Bangladesh Cricket Board President, Mr Nazmul Hassan, in Dubai this week.

Notably, BCB and its Pakistan counterpart are yet to finalise the schedule of the tour which is slated to take place later this month as the hosts want to stage a full series consisting of two Tests and three T20s in their country. "We don't think we can play Test now". The PCB has said that after the Test tour by Sri Lanka there was no ground for Bangladesh refusing to tour Pakistan as per the ICC Test Championship schedule because of security concerns.

BCB president Hassan said the recent tension in the Middle East between Iran and the United States was the main reason behind the decision as the government had given the board permission to send the team only for a short period. "But if you only ask me about going to Pakistan or not, I would say yes, I would go", said Mortaza.

Bangladesh's tour to Pakistan fell in doubt as the country is insisting on playing the Test series at a neutral venue while Pakistan are adamant to host the two five-day games at home.

"So we have made a decision to play T20I series only".

"We don't know how we'll play the Test series - whether be it one-by-one or two-match series together".

"We aren't saying that the security situation in Pakistan isn't satisfactory".
