Bangladesh to host Pakistan in November next year
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed on Wednesday that they will travel to Bangladesh in November next year according to the FTP.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced a tentative FTP commitment till September 2022 where a series against Bangladesh in 2021 was also included. They will play two tests and three T20Is against Bangladesh in November.
However, the board did not announce the schedule of the Test against Bangladesh that was supposed to be played in April this year, but postponed due to the pandemic. The Karachi Test was part of the ICC Test Championship. International Cricket Council (ICC) are expected to ask Pakistan and BCB are awaiting for the response.
“This is something that is still a work in process in ICC [as it is being part of ICC Test Championship] and no decision have been taken regarding it. Probably that is the reason no board is speaking regarding it,” BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury said.
“In the upcoming ICC meeting a decision regarding it is expected to come. [We’ll know] whether it will be rescheduled or the dates will be extended and how they will arrange the points,” he added.
Bangladesh’s tour of Pakistan was divided into two legs this year. The first leg was played in Lahore and Rawalpindi, starting late January. The visitors lost both completed T20Is and Pakistan dominated the lone Test to win by an innings and 44 runs. While they were set to play the final test, the match had to be postponed in the end due to COVID-19.
