Two Test matches with Sri Lanka will be played after the tri-series. Fixtures will be announced by BCB very soon.

“We will announce the fixtures within two-one days. Two T20Is, then tri-series and two Test matches,” said Akram.

Bangladesh won’t get time to rest after the tri-series and SL series. They will be facing Sri Lanka again, but at their home with India joining to play Nidahas Trophy in March, the T20I tri-series to celebrate Sri Lanka’s 70th anniversary.

Tigers’ next assignment will be West Indies tour for a full-series in June. They will tour Australia later.

“We will go to West Indies in mid-2018. It will be held in June probably. We have a lot of games before that. We will go step by step,” added Akram.

There had been only one series played in Bangladesh this year. The two-match Test series against Australia was the only series hosted in the country in 2017, the year which had a busy schedule away from home.
