Bangladesh's proposed tour to Pakistan put on hold

Tuesday, 01 January 2013 - 13:16


Bangladesh Cricket Board chief Nazmul Hassan said Bangladesh will only tour Pakistan if the security situation in the country improves.


Hassan, who addressed a press conference in Dhaka, was noncommittal on the issue, not saying 'yes' or 'no' to the proposed tour, but made it clear in various ways that the January visit is ruled out for the moment.


Two months ago, Hassan had said that the BCB - without mentioning who in particular - had committed to tour Pakistan in an ICC meeting.


But concerns remained in Bangladesh, and it was learnt that the players wanted full-proof security guarantees from all parties before heading to play the series.
