The dates and venues for the two-match Test series between host Bangladesh and visiting Australia have been confirmed.

Bangladesh Cricket Board has also announced that the two Tests will be part of the World Test Championship.

The first Test will take place in Chittagong’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium from June 11-15 while the second will be played at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket in Dhaka from June 19-23.

Australia will also play a four-day practice match prior to the Tests, but the date and venue have not been decided yet.

Bangladesh have played three Tests after the WTC was introduced, losing two of them against India and one against Pakistan, both away from home.

India are leading the points table in the WTC at the moment with 360 points from nine matches, while Australia are second with 296 points in 10 games.

The last time the Aussies visited Bangladesh was 2017.

Bangladesh had registered a historic win in the Mirpur Test before Australia bounced back in the second Test, squaring the series 1-1.
