Bangladesh Twenty20 captain Mahmudullah has revealed that he initially had doubts about touring Pakistan since his family were concerned about him going there.

Mahmudullah’s comments come ahead of the three-match Twenty20 series, which will be held in Lahore from January 24 to 27.

He also noted that he respected wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim’s decision not to travel to Pakistan at all.

“Initially it was a little bit tough obviously. My family was concerned about it but later they agreed on the matter,” Mahmudullah was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “In that sense I am relieved that my family will not feel stressed about the tour because probably Pakistan will provide the best security.

“And as for Mushfiq’s decision I completely support his decision because family is always the most important issue in a player’s life.”

Following the Twenty20 series, Bangladesh will return to play one Test in Rawalpindi from February 7 to 11.

After the conclusion of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Bangladesh will travel to Pakistan again and will play a one-off ODI in Karachi on April 3.

They will then play the second Test in Karachi from April 5 to 9.
