India, Bangladesh, Pakistan tri-series next month?

Update : 18 Oct 2015, 06:46 PM

Bangladesh Cricket Board is yet to receive a formal invitation for the tri-nation series that was drawn up by the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

The BCCI in its board meeting recently was supposed to discuss the possibility of India hosting a tri-series featuring Pakistan and Bangladesh in the first half of December. If the Indian government objects to this, Bangladesh is likely to be considered as the alternative venue.

A decision from the BCCI on the agenda was pending when this report was filed yesterday.

BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury while talking to the media yesterday informed that the board did not get any formal invitation yet.

“We did not get any formal invitation from any country to host the tri-nation series. But we have a slot in hand. So, we cannot ignore it. We are mulling playing some away games in December,” said the BCB high-up.

BCB is currently looking forward to hosting Zimbabwe next month for a limited-over series and is currently busy putting up the itinerary.

“The number of matches for the upcoming home series against Zimbabwe in November will be fixed after consultations with our team management and head coach (Chandika Hathurusingha). We are now doing this work. Hopefully we will be done within the next couple of days,” said Nizamuddin.

“The Test series against Zimbabwe will be held in January, 2016. There is every possibility of playing a couple of Twenty20 internationals, alongside Test matches, ahead of the next ICC World T20 2016,” he added.

Besides hosting Zimbabwe, the BCB is also planning to hold a tri-series involving Zimbabwe and West Indies.
