The Bangladesh Cricket Board re­cently made a writ­ten com­mit­ment to its Pak­istan coun­ter­part to tour­ing that coun­try at the end of the year, its new pres­i­dent Naz­mul Has­san re­vealed to­day. Has­san didn't say who sent the let­ter on be­half of the BCB, but said since it had been sent, the nec­es­sary steps would have to be taken. It was later re­vealed that it had been sent be­fore he took over on Oc­to­ber 18.

"Jalal [Yunus, the BCB's me­dia com­mit­tee chair­man] said in the last press con­fer­ence that we haven't con­tacted the PCB re­gard­ing a tour [but] we have found out that a let­ter was sent from the BCB about play­ing there," Has­san said at the end of a five-hour meet­ing in Mir­pur on Thurs­day.

"The Pak­istan me­dia started say­ing that Bangladesh would tour be­cause such a cor­re­spon­dence had in­deed taken place."

The let­ter, Has­san said, was brief and made no men­tion of se­cu­rity or any lo­gis­ti­cal fac­tors. "Since we have found out about the let­ter, we are con­sid­er­ing whether it is manda­tory to tour Pak­istan or if there are any other op­tions. If we go to Pak­istan, we need to be as­sured of ad­e­quate se­cu­rity for our team.
