Decision soon on Black Caps tour of Bangladesh

The head of the New Zealand Cricket Players Association expects a decision to be made soon on whether the Black Caps will tour Bangladesh in October.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has travel warnings in place for Bangladesh and the other sub-continent cricketing nations of Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India.

Heath Mills says New Zealand Cricket's comprehensive security check is almost complete, and at this stage there is nothing that the association believes is a cause for concern.

However, he says there are still a few things to be worked through with New Zealand Cricket, and a decision on whether the tour goes ahead should be made in about a week.
