    President of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Nazmul Hassan on Sunday said country's security personnel will accompany the Bangladesh National Cricket team during the upcoming tour of Pakistan starting on January 24.

    Bangladesh will tour Pakistan in three phases.
    In the first phase, they will take on Pakistan in a three-match T20I series in Lahore. After that, Bangladesh will tour Pakistan for the first Test of the two-match Test series, which is part of the World Test Championship, and in the third phase of the tour, Bangladesh will play one ODI and the 2nd and last Test of the series.

    "An advance security team will go to Pakistan before the Bangladesh team fly. We've have members of National Security Intelligence (NSI) and Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI) to protect our team," Nazmul Hassan told the media at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Sunday during the first practice session of the tour.

    "I don't want to talk much about the security now. We've prepared well for that. I told the boys that there's nothing to think much about it. With a tension of security, you can't play your natural game. Mental peace is very important to play the natural game of cricket. I just wanted to give the boys this message. We'll also tour Pakistan with the boys. We'll stay together, eat together," he further said.

    The BCB chief believes Bangladesh have a good chance to win the series against Pakistan who are currently at number one in the ICC T20I world rankings.

    "I think Bangladesh should win the series. They (Pakistan) are also expecting a tough challenge from Bangladesh. Tamim (Iqbal) returned to the team for a long time. He is not an attacking batsman like he was before but he is now more mature. Afif (Hossain), Mahedi (Hasan), Shanto (Najmul Hossain) played well in the just-concluded Bangabandhu BPL. I think they together will help us poise a strong performance in Pakistan," Nazmul further told the media.

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has already announced their final squad for the T20 series against Bangladesh. They recalled Shoaib Malik, who did well in the BPL, and veteran Mohammad Hafeez.
    Nazmul believes the series will be a good cricketing show. -UNB

    Somebody needs to tell them they are landed in Lahore and not Kabul.

    Also, by looking at the pictures, its obvious that they are not happy at all.

    Media is too influential and often makes it appear that the situation is a lot worse than it actually is.

    This is actually humiliating us which will hurt our security prep even more.
    I say screw these a-holes. We should've not begged them to play here.

    We should look to dominate them this series so as to stamp home dominance. At this point this drama of security personal and scared faces is annoying. Pakistan is safe for cricket. End of story. Pakistan bangladesh relations have been going downhill and politics does play a major role and many times these perceptions flow through to individuals.

    Don't worry. I'm pretty sure most of the BD players and staff will have good things to say after they complete the tour, after they witness first hand the hospitality and security. Don't hate on them just because they are being skeptical for the time being.

    Differences aside, I haven't heard any cricketer till date say anything negative about the hospitality after they tour Pakistan. Even all the Indian cricketers till date have said just 2 things after they have toured Pakistan -

    1. The wonderful food.

    2. The out of the world wonderful hospitality.

    I have always had good things to say about Pakistan. It's a certain troll who got booted out of PP like a rag street, *** for certain reasons.

    I was also booted out of PP.
    My certain reasons were to question why only post that mostly agree with mods were allowed and others were vanished.
