Pakistan vs Bangladesh Series 2019-2020:
After a long time, Pak vs Ban is playing a cricket series. This tour of the Bangladeshi Team consisted of two phases, the first phase was of One Day International and T20 International Series. Whereas, the second phase included only Test Series.
This time Bangladesh Cricket Team visited Pakistan to play Test Matches, One Day International and T20 International Matches. This tour was a result of long-lasting negotiation between Pakistani Cricket Board a Bangladeshi Cricket Board. In the past, the Bangladeshi Cricket Team denied the Pakistani Tour by citing security concerns.
However, Zimbabwe and West Indian Cricket Team paid a visit to eliminate this hurdle. No doubt, the Pakistani Government eradicated terrorism in their decade long struggle. While the credits of restoration of Cricket in Pakistan also go to Sri Lankan Cricket Board, which stood shoulder to shoulder at every time with Pakistani Cricket Board. They maintained their mutual co-operation by sending their team to Pakistan for full-fledged series.
Previously, Pakistan used to play their home series in UAE. Where they tackled Australia, England and New Zealand in a number of matches. Whereas, the dramatic start of the Pakistani Cricket Team in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 also lead to a number of suspicious campaigns on Social Media like it was the similar start of 1992 World Cup and they are going to win this world cup.
