The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has turned down the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) invitation to tour Pakistan for a two-match T20 series.

The BCB has also denied the PCB’s offer to compensate them after Bangladesh refused to tour Pakistan due to security concerns.

Confirming the news, BCB’s media and communications committee chairman Jalal Younus said, “the reports were not satisfactory enough due to which we had to pull back.”

With this, Bangladesh becomes the fourth team - after West Indies, Ireland and Sri Lanka - to reject travelling to Pakistan in the last two years.

Pakistan has not hosted any international cricket tournament since the terror attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009.
