Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has informed Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) that the postponed Karachi Test will not be held this season, ARY Sports reported.
According to sources, there is no possibility of playing the remaining Test in 2020 due to the national team’s busy schedule
The scheduled Test match of the two match-Test series was postponed in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Tigers were scheduled to arrive in Karachi for a Test and an ODI.
The first Test which was part of the ICC Test Championship was played in Rawalpindi in February along with three T20Is in January.
“After looking at the Pakistan team’s engagements, the Test can be scheduled in 2021-22 season,” PCB.
