Pakistan and Bangladesh Test and ODI matches get postponed due to Coronavirus

Pakistan and Bangladesh Cricket boards have confirmed that Bangladesh is not returning to Pakistan next month as both the cricket boards have agreed to postpone the matches which were about to play in the month of April amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this year, Bangladesh landed in Pakistan for Test and T20 matches and now they were about to arrive back on 29th march to complete the final part of the multi-format tour.

Both the boards discussed and the plans are on hold now, talking about the options of rescheduling the second test which is to be held in Karachi on April 5th.

On April 1st a standalone ODI to go ahead in Karachi is also being rescheduled.

The statement read by PCB- “The Pakistan and Bangladesh Cricket boards have decided to postpone the upcoming series of Test and One Day International to be held in Karachi for later dates.”

To complete the ICC World Test Championship commitment, both the cricket boards will work along to identify further opportunities.

The first test held in Rawalpindi in the month of February and the Pakistan beat the Tigers by an innings with 44runs difference.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board expressed their concern over player safety and security in Pakistan due to which unusual fixture arrangements were done as a compromise.
