Indian cricket team to tour Bangladesh from June 7

The Indian cricket team will tour Bangladesh next month to play a one-off Test and three one-day internationals.

India will leave for Bangladesh on June 7 and the first Test will be hosted in Fatullah — the venue will host a Test after nine years — starting June 10. The touring side will also play a practice game prior to the start of the Test match, according to a BCCI media release.

The focus will then shift to Mirpur for the three ODIs on June 18, 21 and 24 and the team will depart a couple of days later.

With monsoons forecast during the month of June, all ODIs have been assigned a reserve day.

Bangladesh have never hosted a Test in the months of June, July, August and September due to the rainy season. But this year after, the India series, South Africa will also tour Bangladesh during July-August.

Bangladesh are currently hosting Pakistan and the hosts have been in top form after blanking the tourists 3-0 in the ODIs and the one-off Twenty20. The first of the two Tests ended in a high-scoring draw.
