Bangladesh and Afghanistan will play their first-ever bilateral ODI series in September, the Afghanistan Cricket Board and BCB confirmed on Sunday. The two sides will play the three-match series on September 25, 28 and October 1 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
Afghanistan's only other experience playing against a Full Member side in bilateral ODI series is against Zimbabwe, with whom they have played three series so far.
ACB chairman Nasimullah Danish said that Afghanistan are trying to get more games with Full Members, and Bangladesh is just the start. "We are looking forward [to] entertaining cricket," he said. "We are in close discussion with ICC Full Members. It's always good for our team development to test ourselves in different conditions, and there's no better place than Bangladesh to do that."
