While this will be the first junior international series in Pakistan in 15 years, third time in as many years Bangladesh will send their side to Pakistan following their women’s tour in November 2019 and the men’s team for a Test in February 2020.

“The U19 series comprising a four-day and five limited-over matches will provide opportunities to players from either side to showcase their skills and earn the nod of their coaches and selectors.
