As the national team remain busy with the tour of United Kingdom for the next two and a half months, the BCB has decided to keep the pipeline cricketers busy.
In order to keep the national pipeline busy, the Bangladesh A team cricketers will first undergo a three-week long training camp before heading into the series against their Afghanistan and Sri Lanka counterparts.
“Afghanistan are scheduled to arrive at home, while we are also going for a tour in Sri Lanka. We are scheduled to play two four-day games and a three-match one-day series at home against Afghanistan, who will arrive in August. Followed by the series against Afghanistan, the Bangladesh A team will travel to Sri Lanka,” informed BCB cricket operations committee chairman Akram Khan Sunday.
Chief @BCBtigers selector Minhajul Abedin said this is Bangladesh's best possible team going into the @ICC @cricketworldcup 2019 in England and Wales.
