Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has reportedly refused to travel to Pakistan for both the Twenty20 and Test series.

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.

On Sunday, it was reported that the PCB rejected Bangladesh’s proposal to play one Test in Pakistan and the other in Dhaka.

Rahim’s alleged refusal to go to Pakistan comes after a high-ranking BCB official revealed that most players are “unwilling” to tour the country.

The official added that the board itself “is not in a happy mood with this tour”.

  1. Such low grade cricketers think they have gone big stars refusing to play anywhere due to please some financiers lol. Let him live the dream of self star and sleep in shame to play politics in the gentle game of cricket. World leaders and world tourists rushing to explore Pakistan but only losers will keep themselves away from this great land. Pakistan doing great job in securing peace worldwide

    • I think the security issue is the reason they are worried. But if Sri Lanka toured successfully, then why not Bangladesh? Even big name stars like Shane Watson from Australia are willing to play in Pakistan for the PSL. So really, there is no excuse.

      • I think Pakistan players should’ve protested in some way during BPL as well. I was just watching a BPL match today where I think if I am not mistaken I saw Shadab and Faheem playing in Mushfiq’s team. Also senior or junior player theory is hard to understand for me. I mean lives of all cricketers or humans are equally precious for both Bangladesh and us. If you are not a big star doesn’t mean you can’t get hurt and so you can replace the “senior” players!

      • I agree Muhammad. If Bangladesh don’t want to come, then Pakistan players shouldn’t be in Bangladesh and helping make the BPL a success.

  2. I’m demn sure if these players would have asked for playing psl in Pakistan over huge amounts, they wouldn’t have excused. But unfortunately for their local support these players are denying.
