The BCB has confirmed the dates of Australia's tour of Bangladesh later this year. The visitors will play two Tests in October in what will be their second Test series in Bangladesh.

After arriving on September 28 and training in Dhaka for four days, Australia will play a three-day practice match in Fatullah from October 3 to 5.

They will then travel to Chittagong to play the first Test from October 9 to 13 before the second Test from October 17 to 21 in Dhaka.

Australia's only Test tour of Bangladesh previously was in 2006 when they played two games in Fatullah and Chittagong. They also came to play a three-match ODI series in 2011.

Bangladesh toured Australia twice too, in 2003 to play two Tests and three ODIs, and in 2008 for three ODIs.
