Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has turned down an offer of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to tour the country for two matches T20I series after ICC Champions Trophy 2017. In addition to that, the Bangladesh Board has also turned the compensation demanded by the PCB after Bangladesh did not travel the country citing security issues.

Meanwhile, Shaharyar Khan, who resigned for the post of PCB Chairman has said that he will be taking up this matter in the next ICC meet. Along with it, he will also be taking the issue of India-Pakistan bilateral series as well.
