Islamabad, Jan 23 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has expressed its intention to the International Cricket Council (ICC) to host Bangladesh for a Test series in April in a bid to revive international cricket at home.
The Daily Times quoted a PCB official as saying that the board was confident about the Bangladesh tour going ahead since the government had also given an assurance about providing top level security arrangements for the touring side.
"The reason we have kept the ICC in the loop is that even their security experts are aware of the arrangements being made for the Bangladesh team. But primarily this is a bilateral series that has to be finalised between two boards," the PCB official said.
"Our main aim is to break the ice of Test teams not coming to Pakistan. If Bangladesh come we will have better chances of convincing other Boards that they also now need to support us," he added.
The PCB reportedly sent its chief operating officer Subhan Ahmad recently to Dhaka to personally offer condolences on the sad demise of the chief executive of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Manzur Ahmed.
The official said Subhan had not officially discussed the invitation to the Bangladesh Board to send its team to Pakistan, but the BCB officials had indicated that they were in the process of getting clearance from their government to send a high level delegation to Pakistan to inspect the security arrangements for their team.
