The Bangladesh U-19 cricket team will begin their preparation for the 2020 U-19 World Cup by taking on their Sri Lanka counterparts in a two-match four-day series and five youth ODIs.

Ahead of the Sri Lanka series, Bangladesh U-19 head coach Naveed Nawaz said, “We will play the World Cup in South Africa in two years’ time. We have a few series before the World Cup. We will play in England in August next year. We might play in New Zealand before the World Cup. Prior to that we will contest two home series. Our main target is to overcome the challenge of the away conditions in these series.”
