Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan has confirmed that the national team’s tour of Bangladesh in July-August has been called off.

Pakistan last toured Bangladesh in 2015 and were scheduled to play two Tests, three ODIs and a Twenty20 International during their upcoming trip to the country.

Shaharyar attributed the decision to the fact that Bangladesh had turned down an invitation to play two Twenty20 Internationals in Pakistan.

“We had spoken about the possibility of hosting them (Bangladesh in Pakistan) this year,” Shaharyar told ESPNcricinfo. “Pakistan have now toured Bangladesh twice without them reciprocating, and we feel we cannot tour Bangladesh for the third straight time.

“Therefore, we have decided to postpone the tour, and will explore another window in the next year or so.”
