Khulna to host second Zimbabwe Test

Khulna will host the second Test between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, instead of Chittagong as initially announced by the BCB. A one-day practice match has also been added as part of alterations to the previously proposed schedule.

The teams had been slated to travel from Fatullah to Chittagong to Mirpur and back to Chittagong, which was questioned within the board. The BCB conducted an inspection of the grounds and facilities in Khulna last month and the venue will host its first Test since November 2012.

Zimbabwe play a three-day game in Fatullah from October 20. Then they arrive in Mirpur, instead of Chittagong, for the first Test on October 25. After a short trip to Khulna for the second Test, the teams will go to Chittagong for the third Test, the one-day practice game and the first two ODIs of the five-match series. The remaining games will be held in Mirpur.
