Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan on Saturday ruled out the chances of Bangladesh national team paying a visit to neighbouring nation Sri Lanka after the ICC World Cup in July amidst fear of more terrorist attacks in the country. ‘There is only one problem about Sri Lanka, the kind of situation is there, there’s no question of going there…. Not only Bangladesh, I don’t think any team will play there,’ Nazmul told reporters in his residence.
