Tigers fly off for UK tour
The Bangladesh ODI squad, led by Mashrafe bin Mortaza, left Dhaka on Wednesday night for their 45-day long tour of the UK. The Tigers will first stop in Sussex, England for a 10-day conditioning camp where they will play two 50-over practice matches before travelling to Ireland for a tri-nation series against the home side and New Zealand. The tri-series is scheduled to begin in Dublin on May 12 with Bangladesh taking on the Irish. The 12-day series will be played in accordance with the double round-robin format. The team with the most wins will lift the title. The series will serve as preparation for the 2017 Champions Trophy where the men in red and green and the Kiwis are among the eight participating teams. The ICC event is scheduled to take place in June in England and Wales. Bangladesh however, are set to miss Mashrafe in the opening match of the tri-series. The right-arm pacer is suspended for one ODI for slow over-rate in the third and final match against host Sri Lanka earlier this month. Bangladesh in their second game will face New Zealand on May 17. The Tigers will then take on Ireland, for the second time, on May 19, before taking on the Kiwis in their last match on May 24. All the matches will be played in Dublin at two venues - Malahide Cricket Club Ground and Clontarf Cricket Club Ground.
