The cricketers are currently training in the capital city Dhaka since this month. Chairman of the BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board) cricket operations committee Akram Khan said that the main target will be to cope with the conditions at ZACS.
“The cricketers are performing well in the conditioning camp in Dhaka. They are doing net practice there. They will start their conditioning camp in Chittagong by playing a practice match. We have a scheduled Test match in Chittagong against Australia, so our main target will be to cope with the wickets and conditions soon,” he said.
Akram informed that the board is positive about the Australia series despite the Australian cricket is heated among themselves for payment issues.
“It’s Cricket Australia’s internal problem, but we are taking preparations for the series as per schedule. We are thinking positively about the series. This series is very important for us as we have South Africa series after it.”
Mirpur’s Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium will host the first Test of the series from August 27 while the second Test will be played from September 4.
