PCB says 'no decision yet' on pulling out of cricket tournaments in Bangladesh

Islamabad, Dec 19 : The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is not jumping to conclusions regarding the country's participation in next year's Asia Cup and the ICC World Twenty20 scheduled to be held in Bangladesh, according to reports.

According to The Express Tribune, questions were raised over whether the PCB still plans to send a squad to Bangladesh or if they will demand from the ICC to shift the upcoming major tournaments.

Relations between Dhaka and Islamabad were strained after the National Assembly passed a resolution earlier this week against the hanging of a Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh leader over war crimes in 1971, the report said.

The resolution fueled anti-Pakistan sentiments and triggered strong protests in Bangladesh, where the Asia Cup (February 24 to March 7) and the ICC World Twenty20 (March 16 to April 6) will be hosted and as a consequence, security concerns for the Pakistan team have been raised, the report added.

However, a PCB official said that the board has not received any instruction from the government regarding the country's participation, the report mentioned.
