Zaka Ashraf, the PCB chairman, has indicated that Pakistan players will play in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) only if the BCB agrees to a tour of Pakistan.
The BPL is scheduled to begin on January 18 and several Pakistan players were sold at its auction last month. Their participation, however, could hinge on the BCB's response to Ashraf's comments. There has been a lot of talk of Bangladesh touring Pakistan but with security continuing to be a concern, there have been no concrete steps forward.
I don't understand why we are so dependent on pak players. Indian players are not playing in BPL. Did that stop BPL happening last season? So many quality cricketers from other countries were unsold in the auction.
