The chief executive of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), Nizamuddin Chowdhury, said that Bangladesh are ready to play T20 Internationals in Pakistan next month but the Test series must take place in a neutral venue.
“We stand firm on our ground. We only want to play T20Is in Pakistan,” the BCB CEO was quoted as saying. “The stakeholders related to the series do not want us to play longer-version cricket in Pakistan,” Nizamuddin said.
Bangladesh is expected to play three T20 Internationals in Lahore before a two-Test series against Pakistan who completed a 1-0 series victory against Sri Lanka on Monday.“Actually, we have no other option here. We can play the T20Is but if we are to play tests then it should be in a neutral venue,” Nizamuddin added.
Test cricket returned to Pakistan after a decade with a two-Test series against Sri Lanka earlier this month. Rawalpindi and Karachi hosted Pakistan’s first Tests on home soil since a militant attack on Sri Lanka’s team bus in Lahore in 2009.
