It has been learnt that CAB has also sent invitation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi but it couldn't be confirmed from the CAB sources.

"I can confirm that an invitation has been sent to Bangladesh prime minister Sheikh Hasina's office some time back. However, in the case of our honourable prime minister, BCCI president-elect Sourav Ganguly is looking into it. I cannot confirm or deny the development," a senior CAB official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

It will be an interesting picture of cricket diplomacy if the two leaders are seen watching the game from VVIP box of Dr BC Roy Club House.
