Pakistan to play full-fledged series in Bangladesh

ESPNcricinfo staff

Pakistan will play two Tests, three ODIs and one Twenty20 between November 29 and December 21, the Bangladesh Cricket Board has announced. The series was originally scheduled to be held in Pakistan, but the BCB swapped it with a return series that's scheduled for April 2012.

Pakistan arrive in Bangladesh on November 26, and play the one-off Twenty20 on November 29 at the Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. The first and second ODIs are at the same venue on December 1 and 3, while the third is on December 6 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong. The first Test is from December 9 in Chittagong, and the second from December 17 in Mirpur. There are no tour games scheduled.

This is the first full series between the two teams since 2003, and the first time Pakistan will tour Bangladesh since 2001-02.

    Please BD fans, be realistic, Pakistan are far better team than Bangladesh. Why talk so big and lose miserably as usual. BD is an unpredictable team, they cannot be trusted to perform consistently. Just hope they can play as good as they did in Chitagong aginst WI at Dhaka. Don't put pressure on our tigers cubs, they'll just fail, but let them loose, they perform better. Best of luck to both team and hope that the series is not one sided. Come on Tiger Cubs, learn to ROARRR!!!! PS: Please don't bring the Liberation issue on this brotherly game.

    Bangladesh has got a good chance they are in good form and they are at hoe, while pakistan may be tired due to traveling and they could get under pressure as they are not use to have lots of anti Pak crowd along side them as they are playing at UAE now a days, where hardly any crowd appears even for support;)

    Good Luck to both teams,

    It will be really great to see Pakistani team in Bangladesh in the month of the nation's Glorious Victory, December. I hope Bangladesh will win the first test in Chittagong and give the nation a new taste of Victory on 16th December.

    Also good luck for Pakistan.

    Well, I am surprised that people are talking about any kind of match between BD and PAK. Guys wake up. Its gonna be a white wash from Pakistan and BD will be blown away, specially the form Pak team is in offlate. There is no match. We know that Pakistan can be unpredictible but against BD.... no way.... Pakistan is gearing up to challenege world's best teams and marching towards no1 test team at least and here we are talking about competition from BD.

  • Dummy4 on October 27, 2011, 11:09 GMT

    i would be a good series after BD performance against WI.

    there should be more between PAKISTAN and BD.
