Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has refused to send its team to Pakistan for the remaining matches citing coronavirus fears, media reports said. The Bengal Tigers are scheduled to play a one-off ODI and a Test match in Karachi starting from April 1st.

PCB has not yet given an official stance. Earlier, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was planning to shift Bangladesh matches from Karachi, and a final decision was expected today. Moreover, the board has also given foreign players, participating in the PSL, an option to fly back home mid-season due to the ongoing situation. Upon the Sindh government’s recommendation, Pakistan Cricket Board has already decided to host the remaining Karachi-leg of PSL 2020 behind closed doors.
