Default Aussies confirm Bangladesh tour

Source : BBC>>

Australia will make their first Test tour of Bangladesh in April 2006, it has been confirmed.

The two countries will shortly be playing a one-day tournament in England but have only ever played each other in two Tests, in Australia in 2003.

The Aussies will arrive in Bangladesh on April 6 and play their first Test at Dhaka on April 9.

The second Test will begin at Chittagong on April 16 and three one-day internationals will follow.

Bangladesh were under fire recently after tamely losing a two-Test series in England, taking only six wickets in the process.

But Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said: "Ten countries isnt a lot of countries to be registered Test-playing countries and.

"In order for the game to continue to grow, which is what we want to happen, its important that countries like Bangladesh are given the best possible opportunity to do that."

Aussies due in Dhaka April 6
Sports Reporter
The DailyStar

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Wednesday revealed the itinerary of Australia's tour of Bangladesh next year.

The world champions will arrive in Dhaka on April 6 to play two Tests and three one-day internationals during their 23-day stay in the country.

The first Test will start from April 9 at Dhaka and then the teams will travel to Chittagong to play the second and final Test from April 16-20.

The first game of the three-match one-day series will also take place at the port city.

The invincible Aussies will play the last two one-day games against the home side in Dhaka on April 26 and April 28 before their departure on April 29. The last two limited-over matches will be day-night affairs.

The matches in Dhaka are expected to be played at BCB's new home in Mirpur. The board is now preparing the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur as a Test venue after they quit the Banga-bandhu National Stadium.

The two teams have so far played two Tests, both during the Tigers' visit to down under back in 2003.

April 9-13: First Test at Dhaka.
April 16-20: Second Test at Chittagong.
April 23: First ODI at Chittagong.
April 26: Second ODI at Dhaka (D/N).
April 28: Third ODI at Dhaka (D/N).
