Bangladesh likely to play only T20Is in Pakistan
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is intent to appear in Twenty20 series against Pakistan in their home soil and will make request to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to stage the Test series in any neutral venue.
Akram Khan, BCB cricket operation chairman expressed their intention to request Pakistan to split the under consideration into two segments where the shortest version of the game would only be venued in Pakistan.
“We may ask Pakistan to split the Test and Twenty20 series,”
said Akram Khan.
“Which series we play first will depend on the security report. If we don’t get the green signal for some reason then we have to discuss with them over playing at a neutral venue but if we get the green signal then it’s different,” he said.
BCB considering the high security arrangements as a stress factor under which cricketers might be exhausted to stay longer for playing Test matches.
Akram Khan hinted that only a non-objection certificate from the government will propel the decision further after which BCB would meet with cricketers to receive their opinion.
“The government NOC is more important for us than Sri Lanka,” Akram khan said.
“Because only then (after getting the NOC) we can think of the tour. We are waiting for a suggestion from the government. We will naturally sit with the players and take their opinion as well,” he added.
