PCB postpones Bangladesh series, Pakistan Cup Tournament


Islamabad, 16 March 2020 – Sports Reporter;

Bangladesh’s upcoming cricket tour of Pakistan was postponed on Monday due to coronavirus pandemic.

Bangladesh were due to play a one-day international on April 1 followed by a Test, as Pakistan slowly re-emerges as a host for international cricket after a decade of isolation.

“The Pakistan and Bangladesh cricket boards have decided to postpone the upcoming one-day International and Test in Karachi for a later date,” said the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in a statement.

The PCB has also postponed the domestic Pakistan Cup tournament, which was scheduled to start on March 25.

The announcement comes days after Pakistan began holding the remaining matches of its domestic cricket league in empty stadiums to prevent the transmission of the virus.

Pakistan has recorded fewer than 100 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, and no deaths.
