Bangladesh to tour Pakistan

6:47 am on 16 April 2012

Bangladesh have agreed to a brief cricket tour to Pakistan later this month, for what will be the first full internationals in the country since March 2009 when Sri Lankan cricketers and officials were attacked by gunmen in Lahore.

There'll be a one day international on the 29th of this month and a Twenty20 international the next day.

Foreign teams have avoided Pakistan since six Pakistani policemen were killed three years ago, and Pakistan have had to play their "home" matches at neutral venues.
