Bangladesh may become first cricket team to tour Pak since 2009

Bangladesh could become the first international cricket team to tour Pakistan since the Lahore terror attacks in March 2009.

No side has visited the country following the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team by 12 gunmen on their way to a game at the Gaddafi stadium. Six Pakistani policemen and two civilians were killed, with a number of the tourists wounded by bullets or shrapnel.

The Sun quoted Bangladesh Cricket Board chief Mustafa Kamal, as saying: "We are seeking the ICC clearance to play the series in Pakistan."

The two sides are currently playing each other in Bangladesh, with Pakistan having won the sole Twenty20, three one-dayers and the first of two Tests.
