Zimbabwe to tour Bangladesh for tri-series in September

Bangladesh will play tri-series against Zimbabwe, Afganistan tour in September 2019.





Bangladesh will host a tri-series involving Afghanistan and Zimbabwe from September 13-24, announced Bangladesh Cricket Board. The tournament will begin after the home team's Only One Test match against Afghanistan, to be played between September 5 and 9 in Chittagong.

Zimbabwe, who was recently suspended by the ICC, will be making their first appearance in international cricket since the sanction was imposed on July 18.

 Host Bangladesh will play against Zimbabwe in the tri-series opener at Dhaka on September 13 while Afghanistan will begin against Zimbabwe on the following day.

Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan at Dhaka on September 15 and later the team will move to Chittagong to play the next three matches on September 18,20 and 21.

The final will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on September 24.

There is a speculation that an ODI series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe might take place after the tri-nation as BCB is hoping to give a farewell to their ODI skipper Mashrafe Mortaza.








"As per the ICC FTP schedule, we had Afghanistan touring Bangladesh for a Test match and ODI or T20 match. We decided to make that a triangular series as per the request of the Zimbabwean cricket board in the last ICC scheduling meeting," BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury said.


"There is no problem with the match status [involving Zimbabwe]. They cannot take part in ICC competition and ICC is following those things as there were some implications of ICC on their financial status," he said.


"As per their ban on the cricket board there was confusion about their participation but the Zimbabwe cricket board requested to give them some time as they wanted to sort out the matter," he said.
