Pakistan cricket authorities on Thursday voiced astonishment at what they called an "extremely disturbing" development after a court in Dhaka ordered Bangladesh to postpone their tour over security fears.

The Tigers were set to play a 50-over game and a T20 international on April 29 and 30 in Lahore, the first international cricket matches in Pakistan for 3 years.

But the high court in Dhaka ordered the team to delay the visit by at least four weeks while Bangladesh cricket authorities explained why the tour should go ahead despite security worries.

International cricket has been suspended in Pakistan since militants launched a deadly attack on the Sri Lankan team bus during the 3rd Test in Lahore in March 2009.

The PCB released a strongly-worded statement voicing their fury at the postponement of the Bangladesh tour.
