Dainik BhaskarDec 27, 2019, 02:14 PM IST Sports Desk. Former Pakistan left-arm spinner Abdul Rakib has alleged that Bangladesh is under pressure from India, so she does not want to come here to play the Test series. Pakistan's famous sports journalist and TV anchor Yahya Hussaini has also supported Rakib's talk. Hussaini even said that the Pakistan Cricket Board should call back its players playing in the Bangladesh Premier League. Bangladesh is scheduled to visit Pakistan from January 18 to mid-February. During this time, three T20s and two Test matches are to be played. Bangladesh Board agreed to T20 series but refused to play Test.
Bangladesh's refusal for the second time in five years was in 2005 also the Bangladesh cricket team was to visit Pakistan. But, at the last moment, he canceled the tour due to security reasons. During that time, Bangladesh Cricket Board Chairman Mustafa Kamal had said that the team was not sent to Pakistan due to a petition filed in the Supreme Court. Rakib said in a TV chat show – no one may say it openly but doubt that Bangladesh is under pressure from India. Therefore, he does not want to come to Pakistan for the Test series.
Enmity will increase in both countries. Yayya Hussaini said in this chat show, "If Bangladesh team refuses to come to Pakistan then it will be our insult. Later the rest of the teams can do the same. Therefore, Pakistan should take a tough stand. If this continues, the enmity between the two countries will increase. If Bangladesh team does not come here then we should also call back our players playing BPL. However, the concern is that the Asia Cup is to be played in Pakistan in September 2020. The threat will increase on this tournament. "
