The Indian Cricket Team will be touring Bangladesh in December for almost a month where theyll play three ODIs and a couple of Tests. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Thursday (October 20) announced the itinerary for the upcoming tour. The bilateral series between the neighbours will begin with a three-match ODI series and all three games will be held in Mirpur.

The bilateral series between the neighbours will begin with a three-match ODI series and all three games will be held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka.

The opening ODI will begin on December 4 and the second match will be played three days later on the seventh of the month. The third and final 50-over game between the two teams will be played on December 10.

After a gap of three days, both teams will head to Chattogram for the opening Test match on October 14. The second Test will begin on December 22 at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur. Both matches are part of the ICC World Test Championships and winning them both will keep the Rohit Sharma-led side’s WTC Final hopes alive.

“The Bangladesh-India matches in recent history have given us some epic contests and fans from both countries are eagerly waiting for another memorable series,” BCB chief Nazmul Hassan said in a statement.
