Default Visit by a touring side?

I've been wondering, when was the last time that Bangladesh was visited by a touring side? Last I remember, was an U-19 team?

I was browsing and browsing some cricket sites and found out the following link on Zimbabwe cricket. http://www.theindependent.co.zw/spor...ts-elite-.html

Especially notice the sentence of "we got two touring teams per year".

It made me thinking of when was the last time that we had a visit by a strong touring side? I remember a couple of the test team's A sides came to visit us before we got Test status; but what about now? Why did it all stop? A couple of years back I remember Australian Cricket Board XI visited us (correct me if I'm wrong).
I wish we could beat Australia in a Test Match!

Last summer we had Maharashtra team visiting Bangladesh to play T20s against national team, one-day and four day matches against A-team. Maharashtra also hosted our A-team later in the summer for a tour.

SL academy also came for a tour last summer (quite a few players from that team have been later selected for Lanka senior team). Later in the summer BCB academy went on a tour of South Africa.

If you want to look at tours and leagues taking place on Bangladesh, cricket archive is the best site to look at -


BCB can always do better, but it's not like they are doing nothing. At least, our board don't deserve to be compared with ZC.

BCB doesnt want to spend money on these. They are spending money on building stadium where commission, contractory etc. work.
