Australia will fly to Dhaka on Thursday after wrapping up a 3-0 series victory in South Africa, including a thrilling two-wicket win at Johannesburg on Tuesday. Their tour of Bangladesh will comprise two Tests and three one-dayers, with the first Test getting underway on April 9.
"Unlike other tours, we will have extra security for the Australians," Mahmudur Rahman, head of the BCB, said. "No-one will be allowed to have undue access to them."
Steve Bernard, the Australia team manager, is satisfied with the extra security the BCB have promised the team and, last month, undertook a pre-tour visit to the country to assess the situation.
"Clearly we never comment in detail on security issues," Bernard said. "But we are very comfortable with the security measures that are being put in place for the arrival of the Australians."
