Papon also said that the board came to know about the news of the cancellation through the media and is yet to receive any official confirmation from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

“We are yet to receive any official statement from them,” said Papon. “Once we get it, we will take necessary legal steps against them. Probably we will issue them a show cause notice for calling the tour off.”

Pakistan was due to play two Tests, three one-day internationals and a Twenty20 match in Bangladesh in July and August.

But PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan on Wednesday had stated that the board decided to cancel the tour because Bangladesh failed to reciprocate the visit.

“We had spoken about the possibility of hosting them [Bangladesh in Pakistan] this year,” said Shaharyar. “Pakistan have toured Bangladesh twice without them reciprocating, and we feel we cannot tour Bangladesh for the third straight time. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the tour, and will explore another window in the next year or so.”
