    PCB awaits BCB response on cancelled tour

    Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board is still waiting for an official response from their Bangladeshi counterparts on its request to try and annul the stay order from the Dhaka High Court which has prevented the Bangladesh team from touring Pakistan this month.

    "We really don't know what is happening because in our last letter we had made it clear that we feel that the stay order given by the Dhaka High Court against Bangladesh touring Pakistan can be vacated," said a PCB source.

    He said the PCB had requested the BCB to keep it updated and share details of any appeal it filed against the writ petition in the court. But the BCB has not made any contact with the PCB on the issue and it appeared as if the Bangladesh team's tour was now a thing of the past, said the source.

    The Bangladesh team's scheduled tour of Pakistan later this month was postponed a week back after some natives and former players filed a writ petition in the court asserting that it was not safe for the team to tour Pakistan.

    The PCB in a press release said that its legal advisors studied the writ petition filed in the court and believed it lacked merit and had been filed against public interest which would be unfavorable to the game of cricket.
