Bangladesh refuses to reschedule Pak seriesJanuary 16th, 2009 - 3:01 pm ICT by ANI
Karachi, Jan.16 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board is now facing scheduling problems with Bangladesh as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has refused to bring ahead the dates of the proposed one-day series between the two sides.
The PCB had asked their Bangladeshi counterparts to reschedule the five-match ODI series which is supposed to get underway in Dhaka on March 3 because it could clash with a test series against Sri Lanka, but it (BCB) was refused saying that it will be hosting a major domestic event next month.
Pakistan is scheduled to host Sri Lanka in a two match test-series in February-March, but the dates of the matches have still not been announced by the PCB.
The idea was to go to Bangladesh for the five-match series and then return in time to host Sri Lanka for two Tests to be played in February-March, The News quoted a source in the PCB, as saying.
Pakistan had invited Sri Lanka to play in a test and one day international series after the Indian government refused to allow the cricket team to tour Pakistan citing security reasons in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks. (ANI)
