Bangladesh got Test status way back in 2000. They played their first Test match against India in Dhaka. But still now Bangladesh didn’t play any bilateral series in India. This time Bangladesh may tour India in August this year. [Read in Bangla: ইডেনে খেলতে চায় বাংলাদেশ]
Bangladesh wants to play the Test match against India in Eden Gardens, Kolkata. After a busy season in early 2016, Bangladesh has now three series coming up against India, England and New Zealand. The series against England and New Zealand will be full series. The Tigers will only play a single Test match against India.
A series against Sri Lanka is yet not sure whether it will take place or not. But BCB boss Nazmul Hassan Papon is hopeful of India tour. He says, “We are supposed to play a Test match against India, we will like to play in Eden Gardens. But if the venue is changed we have to play. 16 years passed, but we didn’t play in India.”
