The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has rejected Bangladesh’s proposal to play one Test in Pakistan and the other in Dhaka.

Bangladesh are scheduled to play two Tests and three Twenty20 Internationals from January to February.

However, while Bangladesh are willing to play the Twenty20 series, they are hesitant about playing the Test series in Pakistan due to the security situation there and the fact that many players don’t want to stay in the country for so long.

But last month, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan revealed that many star players are refusing to play the Twenty20 series in Pakistan, which has put the entire tour in doubt.

In a bid to resolve the deadlock, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) offered to play one Test in Pakistan and the other in Bangladesh.

However, a PCB official confirmed that the board has turned down the idea.

  1. Sort of situation has turned like BCb is a job applicant that is trying to play with its employers on its own terms amd conditions.. PCB should terminate this tour immeditaley..BCB Should not forget that it would not even have a cricket team today if it was not with the help of Pakistan… Pakistan contribution to Bangladesh cricket are extra ordinary. They are all makes excuses because they are being pressured. Anyways good learning lesson for pak…Today we may need them but tommorow they may need us.. i can almost gaurntee you that…its just a matter of time…Pakistan should chose its friends wisely next time.
