The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has invited Bangladesh to play three T20I and two Tests this month. The PCB announced on Monday that chairman Ehsan Mani will meet Hassan in Dubai this week on the sidelines of the ICC Governance Review Committee meeting, where the two top officials will continue discussion on the Bangladesh's tour itinerary.

"We have got security advice".

BCB had earlier refused to play the full Test series which was supposed to take place later this month, saying they will only tour the country to play three T20Is. So we've made a decision to play three T20Is. However, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) wants to play the T20s in Pakistan but insists that the Tests be staged on neutral ground.

Bangladesh ODI skipper Mashrafe Mortaza on Saturday said that he would have chosen to travel to and partake in the upcoming tour of Pakistan had he not retired from Test and T20I cricket, according to The Daily Star.

CNN first reported Sanders' comment earlier Monday, based on the accounts of anonymous people with knowledge of the meeting. In his response, he said the comment had been made up by "staff who weren't in the room and are lying about what happened".

"So we have chose to play T20I series only".

Veteran Bangladesh cricketer Mashrafe Mortaza claimed that he would've toured Pakistan had he been part of the Test and T20I sides, the Daily Star has reported.

The decision was conveyed by BCB president Nazmul Hassan following the country's cricket board's four-hour long board meeting at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. Due to the particular situation in the Middle East, we have been told to stay there for a short period of time. It's really tough to say no to this tour because Sri Lanka, who were victims of a terror attack in 2009, are saying that they are happy with security.
