Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf has expressed annoyance at the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) decision to put their proposed tour of Pakistan on hold a second time.

He said that Pakistan will 'reconsider' its bilateral ties with Bangladesh after the BCB, once again, backed down from going ahead with the tour.

According to the Daily Times, he also said that Pakistan would not sacrifice their interests for those who do not honour their words.

Ashraf said that the PCB, , had not force Bangladesh to tour, and if they don't want to come its their own decision.

He also pointed out that Bangladesh had confirmed the tour to the PCB and the ICC, "three times and still they backed off, and now their own reputation is at stake."

He also warned that if Bangladesh don't want to respect their bilateral relationship then Pakistan will also respond in a same manner. (ANI)
