The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and Pakistan Cricket Board (BCB) have mutually agreed to postpone the third phase of Bangladesh’s tour of Pakistan.

Bangladesh were to play a one off ODI and the second Test of the series at Karachi.

“The two boards will now work together to identify a future opportunity to complete the ICC World Test Championship commitment,” a PCB press release said today.

The Tigers were set to reach Karachi on 29 March to play an ODI on 1 April and the second ICC World Test Championship Test from 5-9 April.

Pakistan had won the first Test by an innings and 44 runs at Rawalpindi.

The coronavirus crisis has put sporting activities around the world to a halt with major sporting events being postponed one by one following the outbreak. The BCB had cancelled a concert and the two T20 matches between Asia XI and World XI — both to commemorate the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman — to safeguard against the virus.
