The ICC have approved the Naravangani Osmani Stadium, at Fatullah, in Bangladesh as ready for international matches.

The Bangladesh board received conformation after the ICC had reviewed a report by Roshan Mahanama, the match referee, after he toured the country in January to assess the facilities.

The ground was used during the Under-19 World Cup in 2004, and joins Bogra, which recently hosted the second Test against Sri Lanka, as new international venues in Bangladesh.
