BCB President Mustafa Kamal says he is hopeful for a maiden full-fledged tour of India.

Kamal said BCCI chief N Srinivasan "has assured me that a tour could be possible by the end of the year".

"We know nothing is on the FTP and Bangladesh have never been on a full tour of India so we are working to have this event materialise.

"We ll have to leave it to the Indian side, we can t pressurise them," Kamal was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.com .

Kamal, who was in India to attend a function of the BCB s new sponsors, Sahara, met Srinivasan on the sidelines of recent ICC meetings.

India have a busy home season between September 2012 and March 2013, with New Zealand, England and Australia visiting.

Kamal said he is hoping to get a final word on the proposed tour during ICC s annual conference in Kuala Lumpur in June.
Srinivasan assured Kamal that "it will be a complete tour".

Since 1990, Bangladesh have played nine matches in India, all ODIs in multi-lateral series, the last being the Champions Trophy in 2006. India have played 22 matches in Bangladesh against the home team, including seven Tests and 15 ODIs
