Bangladesh Cricket Board chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury has said that the women’s side tour of Pakistan will go ahead as planned. The BCB receive the go-ahead from the government regarding the upcoming limited-overs series against Pakistan’s women’s team in Lahore.
Doubts had emerged regarding the possibility of the tour following BCB’s decision to reassess the security conditions in Pakistan despite the recent successful tour of Sri Lanka of the South Asian nation. They have now gotten the green signal from the Bangladesh government and have announced the 15-member squad of the Women’s team for the three T20Is and two ODIs.
"We have received green signal from the government for our women's and Under-16 tour. So we decided the tour will go as per schedule," Chowdhury said. Earlier, the Indian members of Bangladesh’s coaching staff had refused to travel to Pakistan pertaining to the fragile diplomatic relations between the two rival nations.
