The intelligence team’s report will also decide the future of Bangladesh national men’s and women’s team tour of Pakistan

Bangladesh U16 cricket is on stand-by to travel to Pakistan Monday evening. The age-level Bangladesh side will only travel following a security clearance from a team of Bangladeshi officials who are already in Pakistan to access security arrangements. 

The intelligence team’s report will also decide the future of Bangladesh national men’s and women’s team tour of Pakistan. The women’s team is scheduled to tour this month while the men’s team is to travel to Pakistan in January next year.

“An inspection team is already in Pakistan. Bangladesh (U16) team will travel based on the report from the inspection team. We have taken our preparation [and have the team on stand-by] however, a final decision on travelling will only come after receiving the report,” said BCB chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury to the media Sunday.

Bangladesh U16 are to play two three-day matches and three one-day matches against their Pakistani counterparts. It is understood that a decision of going ahead with the tour has already been taken by BCB and that, only an ‘official declaration’ is pending.   

Bangladesh U16 coach Mizanur Rahman informed that he is quite confident of his team travelling to Pakistan.

“But our main focus is on the team performing and getting positive results against Pakistan. As far as I know, the tour is happening but that is something we [the team] should not be thinking about,” said Mizanur to the media.

Mizanur informed that the U16 cricketers are not concerned over touring Pakistan, rather they are keen to play.

“I didn’t need to make them understand the playing condition that is going to be in Pakistan. I feel they are ready to play. It is good that their full focus in on the game and nothing else,” said Mizanur.

“They are not at all concerned that they will need to travel to Pakistan. I did not see that in them. Their attitude is that they want to play and perform well,” he added.
