Bangladesh coach expresses security fears over team's Pak tour for two-match itinerary

   Apr 17, 5:57 pm

Dhaka, Apr 17(ANI): Bangladesh cricket coach Stuart Law has expressed safety fears, ahead of the team's scheduled tour to Pakistan, which is seen as a vital step for reviving the international cricket in the country after a three year hiatus.

"It's got to be made sure by the two associating boards that everyone is 100 percent safe to go. I cannot speak on behalf of the players. I have spent time with the players and everyone is a bit concerned. Not just Bangladesh, but the other teams as well. The first initial response from the players around the world is: 'I don't want to go," Law was quoted, as saying.

His statement came after Bangladesh is set to be the first team to visit Pakistan since a militant attack on the Sri Lankan team bus during the Lahore Test in 2009, The News reports.

Bangladesh will play one 50-over game and a Twenty20 international on April 29 and 30 in Lahore.

Law refused to confirm whether he would go on the tour, while Bangladesh's cricket authorities said they were seeking clearance from the International Cricket Council (ICC). (ANI)
