Update Bangladesh waiting for ICC decision on postponed Test against Pakistan

Bangladesh Cricket Board officials said on Wednesday (October 14) that they are waiting to hear from the International Cricket Council regarding the postponed tour of Pakistan, comprising one Test and one ODI.

Pakistan Cricket Board announced a tentative FTP commitment till September 2022 which makes no mention of the Test that couldn't be played in April because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The Karachi Test was part of ICC Test Championship. However, according to the FTP, Pakistan are expected to visit Bangladesh in November 2021 to play two Tests and three T20Is.

"This is something that is still a work in process in ICC [as it is being part of ICC Test Championship] and no decision have been taken regarding it. Probably that is the reason no board is speaking regarding it," BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury told Cricbuzz on Wednesday.

"In the upcoming ICC meeting a decision regarding it is expected to come. [We'll know] whether it will be rescheduled or the dates will be extended and how they will arrange the points," he said, adding that there is a possibility that points could be divided for the postponed series.

The first leg of Bangladesh's tour was played in Lahore and Rawalpindi, starting late January. The visitors lost both completed T20Is and Pakistan dominated the lone Test to win by an innings and 44 runs.

When contacted, PCB media and communications director, Sami ul Hasan, said that the postponed series versus Bangladesh was not included considering it was part of 2019-20 season. "The Test and ODI are pending matches, which the two boards will try to arrange at a mutually agreed time. This series is included in the 2019-20 season," he said.

"The FTP for the next 24 months we have shared includes tentative or confirmed tours, which shouldn't include Bangladesh's tour to Pakistan."
