PCB postpones Bangladesh tour

Lahore (Staff Report): Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced that Pakistan will not tour Bangladesh this year as per schedule finalized earlier.

Chairman PCB Shaharyar Khan said that Pakistan will not tour Bangladesh according to the schedule that had finalized earlier on Teusday.

Shaharyar also stated that the series has been postponed indefinitely by mutual consent of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCC).

Pakistan was scheduled to play two Test matches, three One-day Internationals and a Twenty20 International on the tour of Bangladesh in July and August this year.

The PCB chairman said, "Pakistan have now toured Bangladesh twice without them reciprocating, and we feel we cannot tour Bangladesh for the third time in a row. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the tour, and will explore another window in the next year or so."

Bangladesh last toured Pakistan in 2007-08, for a five-ODI series. Since then, Pakistan have toured Bangladesh twice, in 2011-12 and most recently in 2015.
