On a request by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has rescheduled one-off One Day International (ODI) that was to be played after the termination of HBL PSL 2020.
The BCB has requested some extra time to prepare for the second Pak vs Ban test as they have been defeated in the first Rawalpindi test. Hence, PCB has rescheduled one-off ODI from 3rd April to 1st April, a little earlier so Bangladesh can get some extra time for test practice.
Here is the updated schedule:
March 29: Bangladesh team’s arrival in Karachi
March 30-31: Practice
1 April: Only One-Day International, National Stadium
2-4 April : Practice
5-9 April: 2nd ICC World Test Championship Test, National Stadium

However, despite agreeing to the tour, BCB has made it clear that the security of their players comes first. If any threaten occurs, they might not seek to compromise and will opt out of the tour.
According to BCB official Jalal Yunus’s recent statement, “For us, players’ safety comes as the first priority, and we are not going to compromise with it at any cost.”
