Bangladesh could tour Pakistan by the end of year: Reports

Dhaka: If the security arrangements are all set in place, Bangladesh Cricket Team can tour Pakistan by the end of this year, as per the reports.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Thursday that it has made a commitment to tour Pakistan later this year.

The board`s newly-appointed Chairman Nazmul Hasan told a news conference on Thursday that a decision will be finalised after discussion with the government and analysing a number of factors including the security situation in Pakistan.

None of the international teams have toured Pakistan since an attack by militants on a bus carrying the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in March, 2009 in which six police officers were killed and several members of the team were left wounded.

Bangladesh were scheduled to tour Pakistan in April for a series, which was cancelled following an order by the High Court after a lawyer and a teacher petitioned for the plan to be scrapped.
