Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Zaka Ashraf announced on Wednesday that the Bangladesh cricket team will visit Pakistan in December.

Speaking to the media, Ashraf said that Bangladesh team will play three One-Day Internationals and two Twenty-20 matches during the tour.

“We are in contact with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), however the details of the tour have not been finalised,” said the PCB chairman.

After the 2009 gun attack on Sri Lanka’s cricket team in Lahore, the doors seemed to have closed on international cricket being held in the country for a very long time.

However, Sindh Sports Minister and an avid cricket organiser, Dr Mohammad Ali Shah, arranged the much-needed action amid drought of international cricket and announced for a two-day tournament in Karachi's National Stadium.

The matches were played on October 20 and 21 with former Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya (World XI) and star all-rounder Shahid Afridi (Pakistan All Stars) named captains.
