In the team ranking, India (117 points) are placed third behind top ranked Australia (128) and South Africa (119).

BCB peeved

Apparently feeling ignored in India’s FTP draft, the Bangladesh Cricket Board has renewed efforts to restore friendly ties with its Pakistan counterpart by proposing to host Younis Khan and Co in October.

The BCB had postponed their home series against Pakistan in March after the government refused to give security guarantees to the PCB because of an military mutiny in their country.

“Bangladesh has been snubbed by India in their draft for the new future tours program which is why they are seeking Pakistan’s support,” the source said.
