The Bangladesh Men’s Cricket Team will tour the United States of America (USA) for a three-match T20I series ahead of this year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced Thursday.

Bangladesh’s historic tour to the USA meant that the two teams would face each other in the shortest format for the first time.

The BCB sees the three-match series as an opportunity to prepare for the T20 World Cup, scheduled to be co-hosted by the West Indies and the USA.

“For the Bangladesh Team, this tour serves as an ideal platform to acclimatise to the conditions ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024,” Nizam Uddin Chowdhury, CEO, Bangladesh Cricket Board, said.

“We recognise the significance of this preparatory phase and are committed to making the most of this invaluable experience.”

Bangladesh have thus far played only two T20Is in the USA, both against the West Indies in 2018.

All eight matches of the two bilateral series will be played at Prairie View Cricket Complex in Houston, Texas.

“Ahead of the important Men’s T20 World Cup, these games will be vital for our team to get their working combinations, build team cohesion, and fine-tune strategies,” said Venu Pisike, Chairman of USA Cricket.
