It’s been a long time schedule that Pakistan will tour to Bangladesh on coming July-August for playing 2 Tests, 3 ODIs and a single Twenty20I. But the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has called the tour off on Wednesday.

When PCB Chairman Shahryar Khan was asked about the reason behind such kind of decision, he said, “We do not want to come to Bangladesh for the third time in a row. We wanted Bangladesh to come to Pakistan. But it did not happen. Pakistan has visited Bangladesh twice earlier, so we do not want to go anymore.”

However, Shahryar Khan, optimistic about their future tour to Bangladesh although not for this year, also added, “The tour has been postponed indefinitely with the consent of the two parties. Let’s see what will happen in the year to come.”
