Bangladesh announces schedule for one-off Test and T20I tri-series


The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the schedule for the one-off Test against Afghanistan and the subsequent tri-nation T20I series which involves Zimbabwe as well.

On August 30, Afghanistan will arrive and play a two-day tour match before the first-ever Test match between the side gets underway at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram from September 5.

Zimbabwe will arrive on September 8 and play a practice game before the three sides take part in a T20I tri-series, the ICC reported on Thursday.

The first three games will be at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, while the second three will be back in Chattogram. The final will be played on September 24 in Mirpur.

While the suspension of Zimbabwe Cricket by the ICC bars them from participating in ICC events, they are allowed to play bilateral - or indeed tri-lateral - cricket against other ICC members.
