Itinerary Announced for England’s Tour of Bangladesh 2023

Visitors’ first series in Bangladesh since 2016 comprises three ODIs and three T20 internationals 

 The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the itinerary for England’s tour in 2023 which includes three ODIs and three T20 internationals. The white ball tour marks England’s first visit to Bangladesh after 2016. The tour kicks off with the ODI series with the first two matches taking place at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka. Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) will hold the third and final ODI and the first game of the T20 series. The teams will return to Dhaka for the second and third matches at the SBNCS.

England, defending world champions in both formats will arrive on 20 February and play two warm-up fixtures ahead of the ODI series. The ODIs are part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League. Both teams have already secured direct qualification for the 2023 World Cup in India.

Bangladesh has only lost one ODI series, 1-2  against England in 2016, out of 14 played at home since November 2014. During this time, Bangladesh has recorded ODI series victories against Zimbabwe, Pakistan, India, South Africa, Afghanistan,  West Indies and Sri Lanka winning 35 out of their 44 matches in the process.      

 BCB CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdhury said: “In a World Cup year this series provides a wonderful opportunity for the teams to assess their respective strengths.

 “For the fans in Bangladesh and all over the world, the ODIs and T20 internationals offer a mouthwatering prospect. Bangladesh has an outstanding white ball record at home and we all know what a brilliant side England are.”           

 Clare Connor, ECB Interim Chief Executive Officer, said: “It is exciting that the England Men’s white-ball squad will return to Bangladesh for the first time since 2016. The atmosphere generated in Dhaka and Chattogram for this eagerly-anticipated tour will be fantastic.

 “There is a great passion for cricket across Bangladesh, and we expect a tough challenge against a side who have an excellent record in home conditions.”
