PCB chief to be here on Eid day
Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan is expected to arrive in Bangladesh on October 6.
The PCB head's trip on Eid day is being seen by many as a courtesy call and a strategy to improve the bilateral relations between the two boards.
A former diplomat, who assumed office in August this year, is expected to meet with BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon.
While no official agenda with regards to the meeting has been set, there are a number of topics that the two boards will want to discuss. Issues such as allowing Pakistan's cricketers to take part in the Dhaka Premier League or a possible tour of Bangladesh before the 50-over World Cup could be discussed.
The relationship between the two boards went downhill after the BCB decided against touring Pakistan for a series. In reply, the PCB did not allow its players to participate in Bangladesh's domestic league.
As per the current schedule Pakistan are expected to play a complete series against Bangladesh after the World Cup.
Apart from Bangladesh, the PCB boss is also expected to tour India and Sri Lanka between October 3 and 10.
