Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) cricket operations chairman Naimur Rahman has announced that the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) demands to tour Bangladesh in April-May this year are “not realistic”.
The PCB want the BCB to give them 50 per cent of the series revenue and exchange Under-19 and A team tours if they agree to tour the country.
“I feel that you cannot go on a tour by giving conditions,” Rahman said. “It has to be done with mutual cooperation. I have never heard a country asking for a share of the tour revenue from their hosts. It is not realistic.
“The BCB may or may not give them concession. Or there might be something down the middle. But I am hopeful that the Pakistan tour will take place. We have had discussions about it in the board meeting. We are also in discussion with the PCB, but no final decision has been taken.”
