Islamabad, Oct.1 (ANI): The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has objected to the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) decision to bid for the 2014 ICC T20 World Championship.

According to BCB's media director, Jalal Younis, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has already decided to host the tournament in Bangladesh way back in 2006, so there was no question of hosting the event in Pakistan.

"The papers to host this tournament was prepared and submitted to the ICC by the BCB.

The papers were scrutinized by the ICC in April 2006 and it was decided by the ICC board members that the 2014 ICC WT20 would be held in Bangladesh," The Nation quoted Younis, as saying.

"The then BCB chief Ali Ashghar Lobi was given the acceptance of the bid and therefore the PCB can not claim to host for this event," he added.

It may be noted that PCB chief Ijaz Butt recently said that the PCB would push for hosting the 2014 T20 World Cup in Pakistan. ANI)
