Pakistan and Bangladesh haven’t faced each other in a competitive series in a long time. In 2015, Bangladesh welcomed Pakistan for the first time. Pakistan will tour Bangladesh in the United Arab Emirates after the T20 World Cup, according to Bangladesh Cricket Board Chief Executive Officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury’s recent declaration.
Given that the series would begin after the T20 World Cup, officials have focused their efforts on the other two formats, namely Tests and One-Day Internationals. For those who don’t know, when Pakistan last visited Bangladesh in 2015, the hosts swept the ODI series 3-0, paving the way for the Tigers’ surge in short overs cricket.
WTC 2021-23 will include a two-match Test series
According to reports, the two teams will play two Test matches, three ODIs, and maybe three T20 matches. This series will mark Bangladesh’s entry into the World Test Championship’s new cycle. Due to the distress created by Covid-19 in the previous cycle, many of their matches were postponed or abandoned.
“The Pakistan series will take place immediately following the [T20] World Cup. To complete the specifics, the cricket operations department is in talks with the Pakistan board. As reported by Cricket Pakistan, the BCB CEO assured the local media on Monday that all formats would be covered, and that there would be more ODIs and Tests.
Things have yet to be settled with the Pakistan Cricket Board, according to the BCB CEO’s declaration. The other two forms, however, are given precedence because the bulk of the teams have played large portions of their international series in the shortest format.
Having said that, this series will be a great boost for both of these Asian countries, as Pakistan (ranked fifth) and Bangladesh (ranked ninth) are both pushing hard to get to the top of Test cricket. Furthermore, these two countries are ranked behind one another in the ICC Men’s ODI rankings, with Pakistan coming in sixth.
