The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) are set to push their home series against Pakistan, which was initially scheduled to be played in January, back to April 2015.

The reason behind this is that the BCB wants the national team to spend an extra two weeks training in Australia for the World Cup.

Bangladesh are also set to play a three-match ODI series against India in June, which will be followed by a tour of the West Indies in August-September, a possible tri-series involving Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in October and a three-Test series against Zimbabwe in November-December.

“[The training camp in Australia] is almost confirmed,” Akram Khan, the chairman of BCB’s cricket operations committee, said. “We still haven’t decided the dates but we are trying to do a camp as the condition there is different from Bangladesh. If the cricketers can play a few one-day matches there during this camp, it can only benefit them.

“The Pakistan tour will be held in April next year while India will come in June, and South Africa in July.”
