Pakistan tour postponed

Security concerns put trip to Bangladesh on hold

Pakistan's tour to Bangladesh has been postponed due to security concerns.

Pakistan were due to play two Twenty20 and five One-Day Internationals during the tour, starting on March 10.

However in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the Sri Lanka team and match officials in Lahore, the tour has now been postponed.

"We have been advised by the home ministry to postpone the tour until further notice," said Bangladesh Cricket Board media chief Jalal Yunus.

"The ICC have also asked us to change a few security plans.

"We are now working with the PCB and our government agencies on a new itinerary which will be announced soon."

Eight people died in the attack on the convoy on the way to the Gaddafi Stadium for the third day of the second Test, with several members of the Sri Lanka squad injured and fourth official Ahsan Raza seriously hurt.

Bangladesh has not been free of trouble, though, with 74 people killed in a bloody mutiny by soldiers of the Bangladesh Rifles in the capital Dhaka last week.
