Karachi [Pakistan], Mar 16 (ANI): In the wake of coronavirus pandemic outbreak, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Monday decided to postpone their upcoming ODI and Test series.

The two boards will now work together to identify a future opportunity to complete the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) commitment. The first Test of the series was played in Rawalpindi from February 7-10, which Pakistan won by an innings and 44 runs.
"The Bangladesh men's national cricket team was due to arrive in Karachi on March 29 to play an ODI on April 1 and the second WTC from April 5-9," PCB said in a statement.
