Bangladesh denies Cricket tour to Pakistan

Sports News – Bangladesh has refused to tour Pakistan in January due to security concerns. Earlier this month the Bangladesh Cricket Board had announced that the national team would tour Pakistan for a short two match series.

“Bangladesh will not visit Pakistan for now,” BCB chief Nazmul Hasan told reporters Dhaka.

“We’ve made the decision after considering the overall security situation in Pakistan and the concern that our people have expressed over the safety of their players.”

Pakistan Cricket board Chairman Zaka Ashraf has said that if Bangladesh refused to tour, Pakistani players would not be issued NOCs to play in the Bangladesh Premier League.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board had also agreed to send a team to Pakistan in April, 2012 a Twenty20 and one-day international in Lahore. However, the Dhaka High Court issued a restraining order stopping the Bangladesh players from playing in Pakistan due to security concerns.
