Pakistan U-19 announce squad for Bangladesh tour
Pakistan U-19 will tour Bangladesh for one Youth Test and five-match Youth ODI series next month.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced a 20-member squad for the tour.
Pakistan will arrive Dhaka on April 12. They will be cleared to train from April 16 in Sylhet.
The one-off Test will commence on April 19 at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. The ground will host the first three ODIs on April 26, 28 and 30.
The series will shift to Dhaka for fourth and fifth ODIs at Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium on May 3 and 5.

The series will be Bangladesh U-19 team’s first international series since Akbar Ali’s men’s World Cup triumph in South Africa last year before everything came to standstill due to pandemic.
