Bangladesh surprised everyone when Pakistan was not given the winning trophy after they thrashed Tigers in the third and last nail-biting T20 match on Monday by five wickets to win the series 3-0.

According to sources, the Pakistan squad was left "surprised" after they did not get a trophy despite winning the series.

However, a spokesperson of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) told the management of the Pakistan team that they would hand over the trophy after the conclusion of the Test series.

The BCB further added that the head of the board was supposed to hand over the trophy to the Pakistani squad but it could not be done due to his unavailability.

The spokesperson said that officials of the board and sponsoring companies were not part of the bio-secure bubble, therefore, the trophy awarding ceremony could not take place in line with the COVID-19 protocols.
