Bangladesh to send emerging squad to Pakistan following security assurance

Bangladesh will send a cricket squad to Pakistan for the first time in three years after receiving assurances of adequate security from their counterparts.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka are co-hosting an Asian Cricket Council tournament next month, with Bangladesh set to play all their group matches in Karachi.

The Bangladesh squad being sent for the Emerging Teams Asia Cup starting December 6 is the first since 2015 to visit Pakistan.

"We agreed to the tour following assurance of adequate security by the Pakistan Cricket Board," said Bangladesh Cricket Board boss Nizamuddin Chowdhury.

The board would also send a security detail with the squad, he added.

Bangladesh are in Group B alongside Pakistan, Hong Kong and the UAE.

Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, India and Oman in Group A will play their matches in Colombo, which will also host the semis and final.
