Bangladesh Cricket Board has decided not to play Test series on tour to Pakistan but the team will play a three-match T20 international series.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hasan said on Sunday that the recent tension between Iran and the US in West Asia is the main reason behind this decision. The government has allowed the board to send the team for a very brief period of time.
Hasan told reporters here after the BCB meeting, 'The current situation in Central Asia is different than before. Therefore, in view of the increasing tension in the region, the government has suggested to keep the tour as short as possible. The government has asked us to keep the series of three T20 matches there as short as possible. Later, if the situation improves then we can play Test matches there. We are going to inform the Pakistan Cricket Board about this decision.
