Bangladesh is likely to send a four-member intelligence team to Pakistan Thursday in order to assess the security arrangements that will be in place during the scheduled tours of both the national men’s and women’s teams and the U-17 side.

Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan informed that the security team had to push back the visit for unavoidable reasons and that they had written to BCB about the delay.

“We did not have any discussion on this [in the just concluded International Cricket Council meeting in Dubai]. An intelligence team will travel to Pakistan to assess the security and based on the report we will take a decision,” said Nazmul to the media Tuesday following his return from the ICC meeting.

“We were informed that the team will travel to Pakistan [Thursday]. The decision is not fully in our hand. Security is top-most priority for us and it has to be placed properly for us to reach a positive decision. 

“All of our teams are equal when it comes to having proper security let it be the women’s team or U-17 side. We can only send a team following security clearance. We are prepared to send a team to Pakistan, but only after clearance from the government,” he added.

Bangladesh women’s team along with the U-17 side are slated to travel to Pakistan next week before the men’s team’s scheduled tour in January next year.
