The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced plans to play two one-day internationals against Zimbabwe at the newly-built Shaheed Chandu Stadium in Bogra next January.

Although the ICC has yet to sanction the venue as fit to host international matches, the BCB has no doubts that it will do so. "We are hopeful to get ICC recognition in the first week of December," Rafiqul Islam Babu, secretary of the BCB's grounds committee, told The Daily Star.

Clive Lloyd recently inspected four venues - Fatullah Cricket Stadium, Bogra Stadium, Chittagong Divisional Stadium and Khulna Stadium - on behalf of the ICC and the board are confident that approval for all of them will be given in the next fortnight.

Zimbabwe arrive in Bangladesh on December 30 and will play two Tests and five one-day internationals.
