Bangladesh’s women’s tour to Pakistan is nearing to become possible after Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) agreed to provide a security team to the visitor’s team. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) earlier had sent a letter to Bangladesh High Commission in Pakistan for a better insight of the security system that will be given to their team. The dates of the tour that will happen in October will be out in a day or two. READ: Wasim Akram escapes unhurt after unidentified gunmen attacked shot at his car in Karachi

According to a report from The Express Tribune, BCB head Nizamuddin Chowdhury has stated that their security team will consist of maximum two people. “They [PCB] have sent us a proposal. Our women’s team is getting restless to play abroad. Pakistan has given us an offer, we are thinking about it,” he said. If everything is okay and the women’s team agrees to go…there are a lot of factors left. It is still quite far away [from being finalised].”

In 2012, security personnel from the BCB had visited Pakistan but the proposed tour for the men’s team in April was postponed for more than two years. Pakistan has not hosted a full-member international team, except Zimbabwe, since the 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team. Photo: Virat Kohli visits Mahela Jayawardene & Kumar Sangakkara’s restaurant ‘Ministry of Crab’ in Colombo
