Pakistan threatens to review sporting ties if Bangladesh refuses to play

   Apr 11, 10:44 am

Lahore, Apr 11 (ANI): Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf has threatened to review sporting ties with Bangladesh if Dhaka refuses an invitation to tour the troubled country.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has invited Bangladesh to play limited overs series this month, but the tour is subject to clearance from the Sheikh Hasina government.

International cricket has been suspended in Pakistan since a deadly terror attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009.

Ashraf said he was hopeful Bangladesh would come, but he warned them of consequences if they refused, The Sydney Morning herald reports.

"I think we will have to reconsider our relationship with Bangladesh if they don't tour us, but I hope such a situation will not come," said Ashraf, who took over in October last year.

Bangladesh sent a delegation to Pakistan last month to assess the security situation after the Pakistani government gave safety assurances. (ANI)
