BD Women's tour of Pakistan: BCB waiting for government’s green signal
BCB president Nazmul Hasan on Tuesday said they have no problem with sending the women team to Pakistan.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is waiting for a green signal from the government's authority before sending the National Women team to Pakistan for a three-match T20 and two-match ODI series at the end of October.
BCB president Nazmul Hasan on Tuesday said they have no problem with sending the women team to Pakistan but before that, they have to get the green signal form the government.
"Whether it is the U-17 team or the national team, every team is equal when the security is a concern. We will send our team to Pakistan if only we get the clearance from the government authorities," Nazmul told the media on Tuesday at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport upon his return from the latest ICC meeting.
"We did not talk (with the Pakistan representatives) in the ICC meeting. As per as I know, a security observer team will go to Pakistan soon and our tour is depending on their reports. So nothing is in our hands when the security is the main concern," Nazmul added.
Right after the terror attack on Sri Lankan cricket team in Pakistan back in 2009, no team toured Pakistan to play a Test. However, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka are the only teams who have toured Pakistan in the last one year. But the other international teams have remained reluctant to tour to Pakistan.
