Bangladesh under-19 squad to tour Pakistan

DHAKA, Nov 12 (Reuters) The Bangladesh under-19 side will tour Pakistan after being given assurances about their security, the Bangladesh Cricket Board said today.

''The team will now leave Dhaka for Pakistan on Friday next as situation improved there,'' the cricket board said in a statement.

Bangladesh postponed the tour last week over security concerns after Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf imposed emergency rule, suspended the country's constitution and detained hundreds of political opponents.
