Although the first match of the series will take place in Dhaka, the last game will be played in Chittagong. So the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), have arranged a conditioning camp in the port city and there will be practice as well.

“We haven’t played a match in Chittagong in recent times. So it will be helpful for us to play a practice match before the action. As we would play a practice match in Chittagong, we would get an idea about the ground and conditions.”
