 DHAKA - Pakistan will visit Bangladesh after five years for a tour, comprising Test and T20 series.

     The series which will be held in November-December this year will
include three Twenty20 Internationals and two Test matches of the ICC World
Test Championship, The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said.

     The Pakistan team is returning to Bangladesh for the first time since
the ACC Asia Cup T20 in 2016. The visitors will start the tour with the T20
series with all matches taking place at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket
Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka. The first T20 will be held on November 19, while
the rest of the two matches are slated for November 20 and 22.

     The first Test will be held on November 26-30 at the Zahur Ahmed
Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram with the teams returning to Dhaka for the
second Test, scheduled from December 4-8.

     The Test series will mark the beginning of Bangladesh's campaign in the
ICC WTC cycle 2.

     In Test cricket, Bangladesh still remains win-less against Pakistan as
they played 11 matches, losing 10 and drawing one, courtesy to rain. In T20
cricket, however, Bangladesh won two after playing 12 matches. Their ODI
result however looks much better as they won five matches in 37 encounters with a 3-0 win over them at home in 2015.BSS
