Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shaharyar Khan has said that Bangladesh have agreed to send their high-performance teams to Pakistan in July this year, according to ESPNcricinfo.
Bangladesh had earlier refused to send their national side to Pakistan; however, after Shaharyar met with the heads of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and Sri Lanka Cricket, Nazmul Hassan and Thilanga Sumathipala at an informal meet in Colombo to discuss Asian Cricket Council affairs, it came to the fore that Bangladesh are willing to send their high-performance sides to Pakistan which could also open doors for the national team touring Pakistan in the future.
“Bangladesh have agreed to send their high-performance team to Pakistan, which is a big step," said Shaharyar. "They will play in Pakistan against our high-performance team. I think this time around the ICC wants [the high-performance teams] to play in July, but we will finalise the actual dates later.”
Shaharyar also revealed that Sri Lanka is being considered as the venue for the home series against Pakistan.
“As regards to the national team, they are not yet ready to come to Pakistan but we could play either in Bangladesh or in a third country, which is acceptable to both sides, or we could even do it in Sri Lanka,” he said.
