PCB writes letter to BCB, asks reason for Test tour’s refusal


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has written a letter to Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to find out the reason behind their refusal to play Test cricket in Pakistan.

Following a series of statements by the BCB related to Pakistan tour, PCB has finally contacted the higher officials in the BCB. The letter asks the reason why they refused to play a longer format of the game in Pakistan.

“Sri Lanka has spent overall 34 days in Pakistan during their Test and white-ball tours respectively. They felt safe and happy to see security arrangements,” the letter reads. “Bangladesh’s women and U16 squads have also toured Pakistan recently,” it adds.

The letter further says that the BCB didn’t react anyway on the Test schedule against Pakistan when ICC’s Future Tour Program (FTP) was revealed.

It must be noted here that BCB, earlier, stated that they will decide the Test tour to Pakistan after T20Is. However, now they are reluctant to play T20Is too in Pakistan citing players’ disinterest.
