Fatullah to host India Test, Mirpur gets ODIs
India will play a Test in Fatullah and three ODIs in Mirpur in June, the Bangladesh Cricket Board has announced. This will be the first time a Test will be played in Bangladesh during the peak monsoon season.
India will arrive in Dhaka on June 7 and will have two days of training before the solitary Test from June 10 to 14 at the Fatullah Cricket Stadium, which will host a Test after nine years.
The ODIs will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium on June 18, 21 and 24. Due to the typically rainy weather during that time of the year, all the ODIs have been allotted a reserve day.
Bangladesh have never hosted a Test in the months of June, July, August and September, the period when rainfall is at its peak. But this year after the India series, South Africa will also tour Bangladesh throughout July and a few days in August.
