International cricket is set to return to Pakistan after three years, with Bangladesh formally confirming to the PCB that they will play one ODI and one Twenty20 International there later this month. There has been no cricket between two Full Member nations in Pakistan since the attack on the Sri Lanka team in March 2009.
The ODI is scheduled for April 29 and the T20I for April 30. Both matches will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
“The public of Pakistan have been deprived of cricket and we felt that we needed to support them,” BCB president Mustafa Kamal said. “The reception we received when we toured Lahore and Karachi on our security visit was overwhelming.”
Zaka Ashraf, the PCB chairman, thanked the BCB and the Bangladesh government for their support for the tour.
