Bangladesh will tour Pakistan next month - the first tour by any country since armed militants attacked the Sri Lanka team in Lahore in March, 2009.

The Pakistan Cricket Board made the announcement on Friday.

"The Bangladesh board has conveyed to us their team's visit is confirmed and they have also got approval from their board members. They have also sent us the time frame for the tour," board chairman Zaka Ashraf told the Geo News channel.

Was a life ban from cricket a fair punishment for Lou Vincent?

Yes, he's admitted to match-fixing and deserves his punishment

It doesn't go far enough in my opinion

No, it's only going to deter whistle blowers in the future

It's too harsh. A two-year ban would have been fair
