The PCB had proposed the BCB that they could scrap the T20I series but must play the Test series in Pakistan, which is part of World Test Championship.
However, Hasan had said that the BCB was always with Pakistan’s initiative to revive international cricket there but it wasn’t possible to stay there for a long period at this moment.
While Bangladesh’s junior and women’s cricket teams toured Pakistan in 2019, the senior national men’s team has not visited Pakistan since the 2007-08 season.
