PAK vs BAN Test: Possible Venues to host Pakistan vs Bangladesh 2-Match Test Series in August | Bangladesh tour of Pakistan 2024


PAK vs BAN: Following Pakistan’s early exit from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has moved on and has been finalising the venues for the upcoming Bangladesh tour of Pakistan 2024. The complete itinerary of the tour is being discussed among the officials and plans are being worked out.

As per the reports, Pakistan and Bangladesh are set to engage in a two-game Test series in Pakistan. The series is expected to be played in August 2024 in Rawalpindi and Multan. The two-match PAK vs BAN test will be a part of the ICC World Test Championship 2023-25 cycle.

Notably, the most prominent stadiums in Pakistan are undergoing an upgrade to host the prestigious ICC Champions Trophy 2025, which shrinks the overall stadium base for PCB to pick to host the PAK vs BAN test series.

Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium is undergoing some changes and after the completion, Karachi’s National Bank Stadium will also be revamped to accommodate the Champions Trophy needs.
