Bangladesh Suddenly Decides Against Playing a Test Series in Pakistan

In disappointing news, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided against playing Test cricket in Pakistan due to security reasons.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) CEO, Wasim Khan, has asked the BCB for an explanation behind their decision to play only the T20Is even though the country was declared safe for cricket by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

I have written back to them, being very strong in my response, and asked the reason why. We have our security plans signed off by ICC and it has been signed off for a while now.

According to the details, the Bangladeshi board has suggested that the Test series should be shifted to a neutral venue, however, Wasim Khan has told them that “playing Test cricket in another country isn’t an option now”.

Some reports state that the BCB will decide on playing 2 Tests in Pakistan only after getting a first-hand understanding of the security situation by first playing 3 T20Is in the country. Wasim Khan told in the press conference that the correspondence is still going on and the BCB hasn’t totally called off the prospect of playing Tests in Pakistan.

It is noteworthy that a number of top Bangladeshi cricketers including Tamim Iqbal, Mustafizur Rahman, Mahmudullah and Mehidy Hasan Miraz were all willing to visit Pakistan for PSL 2020, however, none of them was picked by any franchise.

The three T20Is are scheduled in Lahore on January 23, 25 and 27.

  • Unfortunately Sri Lanka broke ranks and ruined it all for them. They no longer have any excuse to not play in Pakistan.

  • If they don’t come, Pakistan should also decide against playing in Bangladesh. It’s good that none of their players was picked in PSL. In world cricket they are parasites of BCCI. They do whatever BCCI tells them to do. Pakistan should not expect any good from them.

  • Pakista cricket board should also taken strict and strong decision against not to playing against Bangladesh in Bangladesh as well as they are making excuses and hiding themselves behind Indian trick and conspiracy, it’s time to take bold decision by the cricket board, we will have to playing our home series in Pakistan only.not anywhere else, whoever doesn’t play with Pakistan in Pakistan we should also thinking not to playing against those. If we really want cricket come back to home

  • Its not due to security but due to dirty politics. Bangladesh PM is puppet of Loser modi just like immi zani playboy is puppet of punjabi establishment.

  • Pakistan should ask them to forfeit the tests in case they don’t want to play in Pakistan. Thus giving us 60 points. Now that ICC has given security clearance there is no reason to say no.

  • It’s not fair to say no playing against Pakistan in its home. AH Pakistan is far better than 2009. BCB must leave BCCI’s sychophancy.

  • BANGLADESH HAS BECOME AN INDIAN PUPPET… THEY CAN’T EVEN GO FOR TOILETS WITHOUT INDIAN PERMISSION.. PCB SHOULD ASK OTHER COUNTRY TO VISIT.. MANY COUNTRIES ARE WILLING TO COME… AND PAKISTANI PLAYERS PLAYING IN BPL SHOULD RETURN IMMEDIATELY.
