Pakistan will not tour Bangladesh this year as per schedule; the Pakisthan Cricket Board said.

Accordingly, the series has been postponed indefinitely by mutual consent.

Pakistan was to play two Tests, three ODIs and a T20I series in Bangladesh in July and August.

Bangladesh last toured Pakistan in 2007-08, for a five-ODI series. Since then, Pakistan have toured Bangladesh twice, in 2011-12 and 2015. The PCB had invited Bangladesh for a two-match T20I series this year, only for the BCB to rebuff the invitation.

Relations between the Pakistan and Bangladesh boards have been sour in the past.

During the Zaka Ashraf regime, the PCB had stopped communication with the BCB and barred its cricketers - who had already been auctioned to various teams - from featuring in the Bangladesh Premier League.

However, Cricket Newspapers report that this situation has been curbed by now.
