    According to some sources, head coach Russell Domingo has declined to travel along with pace bowling coach Charl Langeveldt, batting consultant Neil McKenzie, fielding coach Ryan Cook and newly included physiotherapist Julian Calefato.

    Spin-bowling coach Daniel Vettori, who arrived in Bangladesh on October 25 has also declined to travel.

    Only the strength and conditioning coach Mario Villavarayan has agreed to visit Pakistan. Nizamuddin Chowdhury, the CEO of BCB has informed that they will make a decision regarding this after assessing the situation properly.

    “We haven’t had any formal discussion in this regard as yet and when we have that we can tell you more precisely about the whole situation.”

    The U16 team and the Women’s team are currently in Pakistan to play against the hosts. However, Women’s head coach Anju Jain along with her two compatriots refused to tour with the team and didn’t travel in the end. Former coach Dipu Roy Chowdhury went with the team in place of her.

    This is going to be another issue - Mario is the SRL guy, but apart from that entire support staff are from SENA countries, and they can’t be forced to travel to PAK. I think, eventually the series will be played in UAE, SRL or even BD. What I hear is that most players are looking at few seniors - Sak, Mush, Mahmood & Tammi - therefore if these players are willing, BCB probably can select a full squad, unless it’s legally blocked, but I didn’t think of this angle.

    Its hard to imagine any team playing a test championship match without a full strength team.

    According to the International Cricket Council Future Tour Program, Pakistan will host Bangladesh for two Test matches and three T20Is, starting in January this year.

    A BCB security team will travel to Pakistan soon to understand the arrangements that the home nation will undertake.

    With the Sri Lanka team currently touring Pakistan, prospects of Bangladesh visiting the country have gathered some pace.

    However, there is a backup plan too.

    It is understood that there is always the option of Pakistan hosting Bangladesh in the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan’s makeshift home venue.

    “We have a commitment with them [Pakistan Cricket Board] as per the ICC FTP. Pakistan will host Bangladesh for two Tests and three T20Is. They have some neutral venues in Dubai and a few others that are treated as their home venues,” said BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury to reporters at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka Sunday.

    “We have to follow some protocols for our team traveling abroad and security is one of the chief agendas. We have been working on this with the concerned ministry, and also the High Commissions. We will come t[SUP]o a decision based on their reports,” the BCB high-up explained.

    In the schedule, the BCB also has Bangladesh women’s team tour of Pakistan in late October.

    Nizamuddin informed that assessments of security arrangements for both the men’s and women’s team will be done jointly.

    The Bangladesh eves are scheduled to travel to Pakistan for three T20Is and two ODIs.

    The women’s team are likely to leave for Pakistan on October 23.

    “The process [of assessing security arrangements in Pakistan] has already started. We have already contacted Bangladesh High Commission [in Pakistan] and they have provided us a report,” said Nizamuddin.

    “We have sent that report to the concerned ministry, and they are working on it. We are expecting an inspection team to travel to Pakistan soon. Sri Lanka are already on tour of Pakistan, and we want our inspection team to be present there while the tour is on. That way the team will get to witness the on-ground security arrangements that are taken,” the BCB official explained.

    Chances are that BCB will Likely say No. BCB has resentment against PCB due to hard line taken by Sethi.

    Not Bangladesh, and for sure not against PAK. Full BD team can be routed by PAK (or IND), people will accept that; but if BCB sends just one compromised choice (replacement), and team loses on last ball ..... some BCB officials will lose their golden egg laying job. Hasina might call Papon to her office ... to slap with own hands.

    Bangladesh team’s five South African members - coach Russell, pace bowling coach Charl Langeveldt, batting consultant Neil McKenzie, fielding coach Ryan Cook and newly named physio Julian Calefato is said to have informed their intention to the BCB

    The majority of the Bangladesh cricket team coaching staff are likely to pull their names off from the Tigers’ scheduled tour of Pakistan in February next year.

    The Tigers as per the Future Tours Program will play two Test matches and three T20Is against host Pakistan.

    Media reports have revealed that head coach Russell Domingo and spin bowling consultant Daniel Vettori have shared their observations over traveling to Pakistan, a country that has been avoided by most cricketing nations due to security concerns since a heinous terrorist attack on the touring Sri Lankan cricket side back in 2009.

    However, Bangladesh strength and conditioning coach Mario Villavarayan, a Sri Lankan, is not uninterested to tour Pakistan.

    Bangladesh team’s five South African members - coach Russell, pace bowling coach Charl Langeveldt, batting consultant Neil McKenzie, fielding coach Ryan Cook and newly named physio Julian Calefato is said to have informed their intention to the BCB.

    It is understood that team analyst Shrinivaas Chandrasekaran, an Indian citizen, will also be unavailable for the tour of Pakistan, along with spin bowling consultant Daniel Vettori, who joined the Tigers Friday.

    "We are yet to have a formal discussion on this and when we have that, we can tell you more precisely about the whole situation," said BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury to the media Saturday.

    BCB currently has its national women’s team and U-16 side touring Pakistan following clearance from the government on security arrangements.

    However, women’s team head coach Anju Jain and her two colleagues, all hailing from India, refused to be part of the tour.

    BCB is yet to take a decision on sending its men’s team to tour Pakistan.

    All the Indian coaches are the last one to tour Pakistan as they are loyal to BCCI. Some foreign coaches may be interested to tour Pakistan but under present BD government its highly unlikely they will tour to Pakistan

    BCB still undecided over Pakistan tour


    Bangladesh Cricket Board is yet to decide with regards to the national men’s team’s tour of Pakistan, scheduled for January next year.

    BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury informed that a series of discussions involving the International Cricket Council and other authorities is required before coming to a decision on the tour.

    Nizamuddin said a delegate team from Bangladesh government recently visited Pakistan for security assessment.

    He added that they are yet to look into reports from Bangladesh High Commission and the security team.

    “A government representative team visited Pakistan recently and based on their tour, we have sent our Bangladesh U-16 and national women’s team to tour Pakistan. However the factors of the men’s national team and others [age-level and women’s team] differ,” said Nizamuddin to the reporters at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka Thursday.

    “We will look into the report from Bangladesh High Commission and from the team that have done the security assessment. We also need to speak to ICC because they sent a separate team to assess conditions because they have to assign match officials. We have to discuss with everyone before making a decision,” the BCB high-up added.

    As per the ICC Future Tours Program, Bangladesh are slated to play host Pakistan in three T20Is and two Test matches, which will be a part of the ICC Test Championship.

    So it seems that U16s and Women lives are judged on a different scale when it comes to security - strange logic!

    It just seems that the BCB needs all the friends it can get with how things are at home right now. Especially since their age-group and women’s teams completed their Pakistan tours without any issues.

    If women's team and U-16 team can visit Pakistan, men's team should have no issue. BCB is not being very logical here.

    Women team is visiting without their coaching staff. Don't think that's possible for men's team - this is the support staff that must accompany team for a tour :

    Head Coach: South Africa Russell Domingo
    Batting Coach: South Africa Neil McKenzie
    Fast Bowling Coach:South Africa Charl Langeveldt
    Spin Bowling Coach: New Zealand Daniel Vettori
    Fielding Coach: South Africa Ryan Cook
    Strength and Conditioning Coach: Sri Lanka Mario Villavarayan
    Team Physiotherapist: South Africa/Italy Julian Calefato

    And, I believe they have appointed an Indian Data Analyst as well.

    The mode now in BD is that, if BCB sends a compromised team, regardless of results, Papon will be in trouble. I don't see this series happening in PAK, though I am sure players won't mind travelling PAK.

    The Saffers will be fine. I reckon Daniel Vettori would come too (after taking some advice from Brendon McCullum, Ronchi and other Kiwis who have come in the last couple of years).

    It is because the women's cricket does not have much following (if there is any at all) . The security provided by Pakistan was also far less than the one given to Sri-lankan Men's team.
    In a way lack of interest is a form of security itself.

    When it comes to the more popular version than stakes get higher and so does the need for security.

    Na, they would have if mickey was in charge, but no one to convince them now. This was the only benefit of keeping mickey as coach.

    Hopefully BCB will not travel Pakistan this time. Last thing we want to be whitewashed by Bangladesh in LOI and who knows even in tests due to Misbah's obsession for oldies and defensive mindset.

    BCB still waiting for authorization from BCCI.

    PCB should cancel this tour. It wont make much money and it won't do anything to improve our chances to host the top cricket teams in the future.

    PCB should concentrate on getting SL, SA and England to tour, which are looking more probable with time.
