    Pakistan to tour Bangladesh for 2 Tests & 3 T20Is after T20 World Cup

    Pakistan will make their first bilateral tour to Bangladesh since 2015 to play two Tests and three T20Is.

    Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury confirmed the matter to the media on Monday. Although he did not specify about the matches, the ICC's Future Tour Programme (FTP) shows the two nations will play two Tests and three T20Is.

    The Test matches will form part of the World Test Championship 2021-23 cycle. Bangladesh will then go off to New Zealand for two Tests and three T20Is in December-January. South Africa will host Bangladesh for three ODIs and two Tests in March-April 2022.

    "Pakistan series is right after the World Cup," Nizamuddin said. "Our cricket operations committee is in talks with the Pakistan Cricket Board as well as the Cricket South Africa. After Pakistan series, we have a New Zealand tour. It’s a very congested schedule.

    "The Covid-19 protocols will be the same [in Pakistan series] as we have had so far. We will inform the visiting side about the guidelines."

    The last time Bangladesh hosted Pakistan, the Tigers claimed historic ODI series whitewash (3-0) and the one-off T20I. The two-match Test series went to Pakistan 1-0. In 2020, Bangladesh toured Pakistan for three T20Is and a one-off Test losing all except one abandoned T20I.

    Bangladesh's busy schedule will resume in October, when they go off to Oman and the UAE to play the T20 World Cup. Most of the players are having a break following the home series T20I against New Zealand which Bangladesh won 3-2.

    Nizamuddin said that the players have been told to maintain health rules before departure. Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman will be in the UAE to play the IPL.

    "The players are currently on a break," Nizamuddin said. "They have been given instructions on avoiding public gathering and maintaining Covid-19 rules. Everyone will be tested before leaving."

    One thing i'm scared of is the slow and low pitches. The ball keeping real low was horrid to see in the NZ series no bounce whatsoever.

    In either case our bowling attack should out match

    We have built a decent bowling attack of late. Shaheen, Hassan, Nauman, Yasir, Abbas, Sajid are all very decent options. Plus Faheem the utility bowler

    Pak’s ability to play spin will be the key on the tour. BD is pretty good at home so Pak will naturally have to play good cricket to win over there.

    Should be a good and hard-fought series for Pakistan.

    Won't be easy in their conditions as they have shown against Australia and New Zealand.

    Very true. Guys like Nasum Ahmed, Mehdi Hassan, Shakib Ul Hassan will all be players to watch.

    I reckon the domestic tournament and getting used to playing the kookaburra ball will all play in favour of Pak.

    I expect Pakistan to win the Test series 2-0.

    T20 series can go either way if pitches are dustbowl pitches. If flat, Pakistan should win.

    Will be interesting to see Test matches in Bangladesh. Long time since Pakistan have played there and I don't think most of the guys have ever played there. Might be a very tough series to be honest vs Bangladesh spin bowling.

    It's usually good for batting. I think we can't really look too much at the NZ and Aus series played in Bangladesh as some SENA teams are notoriously bad at playing spin in sub-continent conditions especially when the team consists of B level players.

    Unfortunately our current players are not any better than SENA countries in terms of playing spin. Might include Fahad, Yasir, Nauman and Shafiq (although none of them has any future in T20) in T20 as well. Anything over 130 will be winning score.

    Could be other way around. Babar is similar to Azhar Ali in terms of captaincy. We lack of proper spinners and quality batsmen to stay in wickets.

    Yeah nah that ain't happening in Tests.

    We do have quality batsmen. Babar Azam, Fawad Alam, Mohammad Rizwan and Azhar Ali are all quality batsmen.

    And I don't see how you would quantify Nauman Ali and Yasir Shah as fast-bowlers.

    Pakistan men to travel to Bangladesh after five years

    Lahore, 14 September 2021:

    The Pakistan men’s national cricket team will travel to Bangladesh after five years to play the hosts in three T20 Internationals and two ICC World Test Championship matches after the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

    The national side’s tour is part of the Future Tours Programme and will commence with the T20I series, which will be staged at Dhaka’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, on 19 November. The second and third T20Is will be played on 20 and 22 November.

    The two teams will then travel to Chattogram for the first of the two Tests at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium from 26-30 November. This match will see the two sides face-off in the apex form of the game on Bangladeshi soil for the first time since May 2015, when Pakistan won the two-match series by completing a win in the final Test by a mammoth 328 runs.

    The two teams will return to Dhaka to play the final Test, which will start from 4 December.

    Pakistan are ranked second on the ICC World Test Championship points table with one win in two matches, while Bangladesh are yet to kick of their campaign.

    Pakistan have immaculate record in Tests against Bangladesh with 10 wins from 11 matches. They also enjoy an impressive record in the T20Is against Bangladesh with 10 wins from 12 matches.

    The date of the national team’s departure will be announced in due course.

    Fixtures:

    19 Nov – First T20I, Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka
    20 Nov – Second T20I, Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka
    22 Nov – Third T20I, Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka

    26-30 Nov – First Test, Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram
    4-8 Dec – Second Test, Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka

    Have Bangladesh ever won a Test match against Pakistan?

    They can't get a better opportunity than this if they haven't. Yasir Shah is way past it and that left arm spinner uncle whose name I can't remember will be cannon fodder for Mushi, Shakib, Liton, Tamim etc who literally grew up playing plethora of such SLAO bowlers on dry turners.

    But I think pak will somehow win one. Going with 1-1 in Tests and 2-1 either way in T20s..

    Hm, I feel like you are overestimating Bangladesh in tests here. The likes of Brathwaite and Warrican took wickets against them.

    Bangladesh lost that series due to their bowling. Batting was okay. Besides, I don't think a spin bowling attack of Rahkeem Cornwall and Jomel Warrican is as bad as one might think..

    This can be a very exciting series.
    Bangladesh need to back their method and produce raging turners. They are used to playing Slow Left Armers.. they have an army of them. Yasir Shah they have to find a way to counter and produce pitches to neutralize the talented Pakistan pace attack somehow.
    Shakib/Mushfiqur/Liton/Tamim are still very good in their home conditions and good spinners.
    Hoping for a BD Series win.. If that happens what a day It would be. It will be celebrated wildly from Dhaka to Gujrat, and from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.

    But still, Pakistan Test team is good enough to rise to this challenge.

    You canít make such predictions, they were struggling against Rakheem and Warrican, Numan Ali although he looks innocuous is a handy spinner. Yasir Shah most likely wonít make the final XI given his form and hey letís see if he even gets selected, Iíd think theyíll go with Zahid. Our test players mind you are not going into this series underprepared they will be playing QeA and then the obvious prep prior to the beginning of the test series. 2-0 easy in my eyes.

    In regards to the t20s it will depend on what pitches are prepared.

    Our test team is better than last time with the introduce of Fawad instead of Shafiq and we have better bowlers this time as well. Both openers are the weak point. Hopefully we can get rid at least 1 of them before the series.

    Wow, first tour since 2015 - 6 odd years.
    And the narrative and slant on this site is about the one board being responsible for all thats evil in the game we cherish. If you guys or the 'other than the so called big 3' gang cared so much for the better ment of the game, what stopped u from having more frequent tour to the shores of your BD bros?
    That apart, I'd question why TWO tests, 3 T20's and NO Odi's? two tests sounds a bit sparse.
    I think BD will go in with turning wickets in anticipation of Mehidy, shakib and co to strike. I'd think its a great chance for Yassir Shah as well as the reverse swing of hasan ali and shaheen afrid to perform well.
    will be a good series, i'd back pak to put it over BD in tests.
    T20's a bit of a lottery and i'd marginally back BD to win series.

    I think its going to be dead flat wickets for the Tests. Possibly 0-0 draw or 1-0 to Pakistan if that is the case. Bangladesh won't want to give Shaheen any sort of advantage. Raging turners have backfired on Bangladesh before, so that leaves only 1 possibility: flat wickets.

    I don't know if you suffer from short term memory loss but just in case, I'll remind you that Pakistan & Bangladesh did not have the best of relations of in the 2010s. Bangladesh refused to tour Pakistan some time in the early 2010s even thought Pakistan did send its players in the inaugural BPL and that rubbed Pakistan the wrong way and from then onwards the PCB opted for a more cold approach towards the BCB. Also geopolitical tensions between Pakistan and Bangladesh were high in the mid to late 2010s and Islamabad viewed the Sheikh government in Bangladesh as either an Indian asset or proxy or at least that they were more favorable towards India than to Pakistan which was what the PCB believed played a role in Bangladesh choosing not to tour Pakistan. Now ties being Pakistan and Bangladesh are better than before under Khan's government and Bangladesh has issues with the Indian government and have grown closer to PRC. So these are the factors behind recent warming in ties between the two countries, if Indians tried to learn more about the world outside their country then they wouldn't be posting such ignorant comments.

    Good tour.

    In their conditions, it will show us who has a good technique against spin.

    The only way to survive in those conditions is to be able to play a versatile array of strokes.

    Backing Rizwan to be the leading run-scorer of the tour.

    This tour will hopefully answer questions on Babar's ability to play left-arm spin.

    One complaint is why T20s first, tests are more important.

    Thats what I am expecting. Makes no sense to make a seam friendly surface - to the extent thats even possible in Bangladesh. A turning pitch would aid Yasir, Nouman, whoever else. Only thing that makes sense is a dead pitch where both sides will score 500+.

    Prepare for a snoozefest if wickets and results are your thing.

    True. But even this strategy could backfire on Bangladesh if they lose the toss. We saw in the series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan (last time they toured) that if the other team wins the toss and puts up 500+ than Bangladesh can easily wilt under the scoreboard pressure and lose comprehensively.

    However from a BD point-of-view, this strategy is still more sensible than dishing out a turner.

    Not a bad explanation. But the default narrative of every one's fault but us still is in place. the same 'world outside their country ' has spoken on a lot of fronts with their decisions.
    Any ways, on a purely cricketing view point, series will be good. I'd follow test cricket or any one playing tests as opposed to the IPL or any t20 leagues. Bring it on.

    Time for reality check for B'desh. After winning against Aus, NZ B teams, they will swept aside against their nemesis.

    Babar and Shaheen will wreak havoc.

    Bangladesh national team selector Habibul Bashar said that the upcoming National Cricket League (NCL) will be adequate preparation for the two Tests against Pakistan -- part of the ICC World Test Championship -- in November-December.

    This home series against Pakistan is set to be the Tigers' first assignment after the upcoming T20 World Cup, which will be held in the UAE and Oman from October 17 to November 14.

    The NCL had to be initially postponed and later cancelled last year due to complications arising from the coronavirus pandemic. Although other domestic international and local cricket fixtures took place in bio-bubbles, the travelling during NCL matches led to problems. Bashar said that the upcoming NCL in October is likely to be played in two venues.

    "One of the main reasons that the NCL stopped after commencing was the issue of travelling. We wanted team to play both home and away. But we're still battling with Covid-19 and travelling is risky. As far as I know, the games will take place at two venues at Cox's Bazar and Sylhet," Bashar informed the media today.

    Squads of 20-22 members have been formed for the upcoming NCL and the players will also get a months' time to prepare themselves. "The wickets got a bit of rest so we're hoping for a competitive tournament," Bashar said.

    "We have a few Test matches right after the World Cup. It's a good opportunity to prepare players. We didn't get much a chance to play Tests. Obviously, there is a difference between a practice match and a competitive match. I think NCL will be adequate preparation before the Pakistan series," he added.

    Bangladesh lost the one-off Test against Pakistan in February last year before the pandemic curtailed opportunities for international tours. Pakistan won the Test by an innings and 44 runs. Bashar said: "We have to struggle if we want to compete. We don't want to repeat what happened last time."

    The Test series will mark the beginning of Bangladesh's campaign in the ICC WTC cycle 2.

    Shouldn't the PCB have made plans for Bang to tour them instead? Yet again being spineless and unprofessional.

    This is part of the World Test Championship. So, it is a home series for Bangladesh as per ICC schedule.
