Bangladesh women will play three Twenty20 internationals and two ICC Women’s Championship one-day internationals against Pakistan in Lahore later this year, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced on Friday, 30 August.
Bangladesh will be the second women’s team to travel to Pakistan this year, after West Indies, who played three T20Is in Karachi in January. The Sri Lanka men’s team is also slated to playthree ODIs and as many T20Is in Pakistan, starting 27 September.
“This tour, which will be Bangladesh’s second in the last four years, provides another breakthrough to the PCB in its efforts for the full restoration of international cricket in the country, especially after Sri Lanka Cricket’s decision to send their men’s team for three ODIs and as many T2oIs in Karachi and Lahore, starting next month,” said the Pakistan Cricket Board in a media release.
Bangladesh women will arrive in Pakistan on 23 October, before taking on the hosts in the first T20I at the Gaddafi Stadium. They last toured Pakistan in 2015, when they played two T20Is and as many ODIs. They lost the T20 series 2-0 but salvaged a 1-1 draw in the ODIs.
With 8874 points, Pakistan are ranked seventh in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20 Team Rankings, while Bangladesh are ninth with 5,913. Both teams are in the same spots in the ODI rankings as well. Pakistan have dominated both formats against Bangladesh so far, having won 11 of their 12 clashes in T20Is and five of their eight encounters in ODIs.
