Pakistan Cricket Board said on Monday that it will continue to discuss with Bangladesh before finalising the itinerary of the forthcoming series against the country.

As part of the process, PCB chief Ehsan Mani is expected to meet his Bangladeshi counterpart Nazmul Hasan in Dubai today on the sidelines of the ICC Governance Review Committee meeting, PCB said in a press release.

The BCB on Sunday decided to stick to their decision of wanting to play a short Twenty20 series, dismissing Pakistan’s proposal of playing a Test series in their country. 

BCB president Nazmul left Dhaka on Monday to attend the meeting in Dubai, where he is also expected to discuss with ICC chairman Shashank Manohar about the possible implication for skipping the Test series.

‘The Dubai meeting is a continuation of the discussion process, which the PCB has followed to reach a consensus with the BCB on its national men’s cricket team’s tour itinerary,’ PCB said in a statement.

According to ICC’s Future Tour Programme, Bangladesh are scheduled to tour Pakistan later this month to play three Twenty20 internationals and two Tests.
