Pakistan, after successfully hosting Sri Lanka for an ODI and T20 series, is making efforts to host both Men's and Women's cricket team of Bangladesh. While the women's team will be touring from October 23, the men's team will visit Pakistan next year but is subjectable to the security clearance.
Although the return of international cricket to Pakistan didn't go as expected as they suffered a whitewash at the hands of Sri Lanka but surely PCB hasn't given up. The Bangladesh Women's cricket team is expected to visit Pakistan on October 23. The Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Monday (October 14) that they are still waiting for the security clearance for the visit. The Bangladeshi women will play three T20Is and two ODIs against the hosts during the tour.
"We are waiting for the security clearance from our government for the tour of our women's team to Pakistan. A delegation of our security agencies are expected to visit Pakistan to assess the condition and after they give their report we will decide our future course of action," BCB women's wing chairman Nadel Chowdhury told Cricbuzz.
According to a Cricbuzz report, the officials of national security agencies will be visiting Pakistan next week depending on when they obtain their visa. The men's team will be playing a couple of Test matches next year in Pakistan but even their fate is dependent on the security clearance.
The comments of SLC chief Shammi Silva following their Pak tour could also be on the back of the mind of BCB officials ahead of the tour. Silva said that the security was too tight and players got fed up. PCB is making efforts to host Sri Lanka for two Test matches.
