Pakistan Cricket fans faces setback as international team refuses to visit Pakistan citing Coronavirus spread fear
ISLAMABAD - Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has refused to send its team to Pakistan for the remaining matches citing coronavirus fears, media reports said. The Bengal Tigers are scheduled to play a one-off ODI and a Test match in Karachi starting from April 1st.
PCB has not yet given an official stance.
Earlier, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was planning to shift Bangladesh matches from Karachi, and a final decision was expected today.
Moreover, the board has also given foreign players, participating in the PSL, an option to fly back home mid-season due to the ongoing situation.
Upon the Sindh government’s recommendation, Pakistan Cricket Board has already decided to host the remaining Karachi-leg of PSL 2020 behind closed doors. ------------------------------
When asked about the development, PCB CEO Wasim Khan said that they have received information from the Sindh government just yesterday, and require some time to analyze their options.
There is no shifting but we will think about that (both Bangladesh matches and Pakistan Cup) in the next 24 hours.
