Fixtures of Bangladesh tour to Pakistan at a glance
Bangladesh are going to play a full-fledged series in Pakistan after a lot of speculation.
According to the previous announcement, Bangladesh was supposed to play three T20s and two Tests. But for the sake of security, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) did not agree to play the T20 series in Pakistan. Bangladesh suggested conducting a Test game at a neutral venue.
Despite agreeing to play T20, the reason for not playing Test in Pakistan was due to security reasons. Misbah-ul-Haq, the Pakistan team’s head coach, called the security issue an excuse.
On the other hand, BCB President Nazmul Hassan Papon said he would take additional security personnel and intelligence from the country.
BCB had finally decided to play a full series after several discussions. In this series, not only three T20s and two Tests, but one additional ODI will be played by the Tigers.
