Dhaka – Bangladesh will not go ahead with a planned tour to Pakistan next month over security fears, the head of the country's cricket board said on Monday.

“Bangladesh will not visit Pakistan for now,” Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief Nazmul Hasan told reporters in the capital Dhaka.

“We've made the decision after considering the overall security situation in Pakistan and the concern that our people have expressed over the safety of their players.” – Sapa-AFP
