Bangladesh offer to play three T20Is in Pakistan: PCB

LAHORE (Reuters) – Bangladesh are “insignificantly reluctant” to play a Test course of action in Pakistan and has offered particularly to visit the country for three Twenty20 internationals one month from now, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said.

Pakistan are starting at now encouraging Sri Lanka in a two-organize game plan, the country’s first Tests on home soil since the 2009 dissident attack on Sri Lanka’s gathering transport in Lahore.

That attack left six security work power and two ordinary people dead and six players hurt and saw Pakistan spend the next decade in the Test wild as gatherings would not play there on account of security concerns.

Bangladesh was relied upon to land in January for three T20s and two Tests and the PCB was chipper the full visit would continue given that Sri Lanka had returned to the country for the Test game plan.

“We have had a progression of correspondence with them and they are happy to play three T20s in Pakistan yet they are to some degree reluctant to play Test cricket,” PCB Chief Wasim Khan told feature writers on Wednesday.

“I have stayed in contact with Bangladesh, been incredible, strong in my response, and approached them for the clarifications behind what valid justification. The ICC (directing body Worldwide Cricket Get-together) has affirmed our security plans and it has been shut down for quite a while.”

The PCB ensured watertight security for the Sri Lankan players as the gathering returned to play a couple of limited-overs facilitates in the relatively recent past – anyway 10 key players quit that visit referring to security concerns.

Regardless, a full-quality Sri Lankan side returned for the Tests, the first was pulled in Rawalpindi and the second started in Karachi on Wednesday.

Leader Dimuth Karunaratne was one of the players to have stopped the limited-overs plan yet went for the Tests and on Wednesday said Pakistan was protected to play cricket.

The Marylebone Cricket Club moreover said on Wednesday that past Sri Lanka boss Kumar Sangakkara would lead an MCC side on a journey through Lahore in February to help Pakistan with convincing visiting sides to return to play Test cricket.

“Sri Lanka will complete two-Test organizes here safely and everything has turned out positively. All the security courses of action are set up,” Wasim said.

“So we are moving toward Bangladesh what are the reasons behind you not wanting to come.

“It’s (correspondence) not finished and it doesn’t mean they won’t come. They are examining three T20s, yet for us playing Test cricket in another country is anything but a decision now.”
