Bangladesh national team is expected to visit Australia in 2027 to play a two-match Test series against the hosts, while the Aussies are likely to tour Bangladesh in 2026.
BCB cricket operations chairman Mohammad Jalal Yunus said they aim to play a two-match Test series against Australia at their den in 2027; conversely, the five title winners are expected to visit Bangladesh in 2026.
That meant the Tigers would tour within the land for a bilateral series after a 19-year stop-gap if everything went fine as they last visited the country in 2008 and the first Test in Australia since 2003.
Both the boards have agreed to this connection during the ICC board meeting held in the first part of the month and are now working on fixing a suitable date.
‘Bangladesh will go to Australia in 2027 to play two Tests but not confirmed yet, but they (Australia) are expected to come in 2026,” he said.
He additionally informed that they are also in a conversation with the England Cricket Board to play a series in their backyard; however, they are not confirmed yet but hoping for a positive response from their end.
‘We are still talking with England. Not sure yet, but we are trying to go to England to play a series. We are hoping for a positive response from them.’
The Tigers have not visited England for a bilateral series since 2010, while their last Test tour of Australia took place back in 2003, although they took on in an ODI series in 2008.
The new ICC four-year FTP cycle will start in 2024, and as per the negotiations, Bangladesh is expected to have 40 plus Tests, 70 plus ODIs, and 76 plus T20Is.
‘As per discussions, we have finalized 40+ Tests, 70+ ODIs, and 76+ T20Is so far. There may be some changes here. These are out of ICC events then; there are also ICC events. We can also play the Tri-nation series,’ Jalal Yunus added.
