PCB chairman courts Bangladesh

Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Shaharyar Khan, has sought a revival of relationship with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), even if it comes through low-profile tours by Bangladeshi representative teams, ESPNcricinfo reports.

Khan’s recent predecessors, particularly Zaka Ashraf, have had a complicated time with the BCB after two proposed tours by Bangladesh to Pakistan in 2012 were called off. It led to the PCB...

Silence masks pain of missing out

Shakib Al Hasan now regularly visits the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur as the ace all-rounder has a separate training schedule to follow. He often flashes an infectious smile at the reporters and sometimes even exchanges a few words; of course not anything serious or relating to his six-month ban on disciplinary grounds. Shakib is naturally straightforward but he has been showing a lot of restraint since the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) slapped the all-rounder with a six-month ban...
