Bangladesh and Pakistan are scheduled to play Test and T20 international series which is expected to begin from next year between January and February.

Recently, Pakistan had successfully hosted a T20 International series and One day international series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan cricket board was in talks with Bangladesh cricket board (BCB) over hosting a test series and T20 international series against their national squad. In contrary to that, PCB( Pakistan Cricket Board) has sent a draft with a schedule to its counterparts.

Akram Khan said “We might ask PCB to split the Test and T20 internationals. Which series we play first will depend on the security report. If we don’t get the positive signal for some reason then we should discuss with them over playing at a neutral venue but if we get the Positive signal then it is different,”
“The government NOC( No objection certificate) is more important for us than Sri Lanka. Because only then we can think of the tour. We are waiting for a suggestion from the government. We will naturally sit with the cricketers and take their opinion as well.” he added
