Bangladesh host Ireland for one-day series
Ireland are to tour Bangladesh for three one-dayers next March and April.
Ireland, who in addition to beating Pakistan in that memorable World Cup match earlier in the year also defeated Bangladesh, will also play two four-day warm-ups against local teams.
"As we are not yet in the ICC's Future Tours Programme, we have to look for matches against the teams close to us in the ODI rankings, such as Zimbabwe, Kenya, West Indies and Bangladesh," Warren Deutrom, the Ireland Cricket Union's chief executive told Cricket Europe.
The tour gets underway from March 16.
