After Pakistan staging three T20Is and a Test game against Bangladesh in the first two phases, the Tigers are meant to return to play an ODI game as well as a Test in the last phase of the tour. However, the outbreak of coronavirus has taken away clarity from the prevailing situation.
With Pakistan getting hit by few cases of this virus, the fear factor has taken a bit of surge. As a result, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is likely to hold talks with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over the current situation. The authorities revealed that they have no plan to compromise on player’s safety, but refrained from making any official statement since the tour is a month away.
“For us, the safety of players comes across as the first priority. Therefore, we aren’t going to compromise on it at any cost. We are meant to talk to PCB in this regard before taking a final decision. At this moment, it is early to give a verdict as we have time on our hands,” said by BCB media committee chairman Jalal Yunus.
