The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Wednesday confirmed the itinerary of forthcoming series against Ireland and Australia, respectively at away and home in May and June.

Bangladesh will travel to Ireland on May 8 to play three one-day internationals and four Twenty20 internationals before hosting Australia at home in June for two Test matches.

The Ireland series will be held in two phases in Ireland and England with Belfast’s Stormont cricket ground hosting the all three ODIs, respectively on May 14, 16 and 19.

The Twenty20 series between Bangladesh and Ireland will be held in England’s neutral venue with London’s Oval hosting the first match on May 22.

Chelmsford, Bristol and Edgbaston will host the remaining three T20Is of the series, respectively on May 24, 27 and 29. 

Bangladesh, who will return home on May 30, will then play two Test matches at home against Australia.

The first Test will be held at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong from June 11-15 before the second Test in Dhaka’s Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium from June 19-23.

Australia will also play a four-day match prior to the first Test, the date of which was yet to be confirmed.

This will be Australia’s third Test series in Bangladesh and second in three years, with Bangladesh recording their maiden Test win over the side during the previous series in 2017.
