Bangladesh will divide Pakistan tour to calm security concerns: PCB

Bangladesh agreed to play three Twenty20 Internationals, two Tests and one One-Day International (ODI) in Pakistan, but with the series divided into three to calm security concerns, the Pakistan Cricket Board ( printed circuit card ) he said Tuesday.

The tests against Sri Lanka last month in Rawalpindi and Karachi were Pakistan's first in national territory since a militant attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009.

Last month, Bangladesh agreed to play T20 matches in Pakistan, but said the tests would have to be conducted in a neutral place due to security concerns.

In the revised agreement, Bangladesh will play three T20s in Lahore between January 24 and 27, then return to Pakistan for a test match that will begin on February 7 in Rawalpindi, which will be part of the ICC World Championship.

After the Pakistan Super League concludes in March, Bangladesh will play an ODI in Karachi on April 3, and the second test will begin two days later in the same place.

"I am glad that the uncertainty around the series is now over and we can start planning for the smooth delivery of the matches," printed circuit card chief executive Wasim khan said.

Bangladesh will visit Pakistan three times, which should give them peace of mind that Pakistan is as safe as any other country that plays cricket.
