Pakistan cricket team will tour Bangladesh after 5 years to play three T20 international matches and a few Test matches in November 2021.
Pakistan’s Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Tuesday that its national team will travel to Bangladesh after five years to play host to the completion of the ICC T20 2021 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Pakistan play three T20Is and two Tests against Bangladesh
The tour begins with the T20I Series, with the first match starting on November 19 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. The T20I series will be completed on November 22, followed by the two Test matches, which are also part of the ICC World Test Championship 2021/23 points cycle.
The last time Pakistan toured Bangladesh in 2015, they were whitewashed 3-0 by the Tigers in the one-day series and also lost the only T20I match, but managed to win the Test series 1-0.
Pakistan has an impeccable record in Tests against Bangladesh with 10 wins from 11 matches. They also enjoy an impressive record in the T20Is against Bangladesh with 10 wins from 12 matches.
Pakistan are second on the ICC World Cup (2021-23) standings with one win in two matches, while Bangladesh will start their campaign against Pakistan.
There is also a high level of possibility that Bangladesh could join Pakistan in Group 2 of the ICC T20 World Cup Super 12 phase, if they become the winners of Group B in the qualifying phase.
