“Obviously we will be discussing future plans because we were preparing for the series against Bangladesh. But immediately we have no alternative plans,” PCB Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmad said.
“We are waiting to see what happens next week although the Bangladesh Cricket Board has informed us it can’t send its team to Pakistan in the next four weeks and after that period we have to go to Sri Lanka,” Ahmad said.
He denied that PCB was going to invite any other team to replace Bangladesh.
Ahmad said that PCB was surprised because in December the entire BCB governing board was briefed on the tour on President Mustafa Kamal’s insistence.
“The BCB governing board was in the loop about the tour and we only started moving things after they gave their agreement to the tour taking place,” the PCB official said.
“We will meet and talk out things and also plan for the future. We will now start focusing on the coming series with Australia in Sri Lanka and also on possibly holding the PPL this year,” he added.
Asked if he believed the Indian board or a lobby was behind the postponement of the tour, Ahmad said the PCB had dealt directly with the BCB and believed they would come.
“As far as our bilateral relations with India are concerned our Chairman had a fruitful meeting with the BCCI President in Dubai and we are looking at things positively.”
