Bangladesh will host Zimbabwe for a four-match Twenty20 series from January 15, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced on Tuesday.

While this will be Bangladesh’s longest Twenty20 series, it will provide them with adequate preparation for the upcoming Asia Cup Twenty20s and World Twenty20.

The BCB initially planned for the series to be held in Khulna and Sylhet, but since Sylhet will be hosting Under-19 World Cup matches, all the games will be played in Khulna.

The BCB’s cricket operations committee earlier floated the idea of playing a one-off Test match, but the idea was scrapped as BCB president Nazmul Hassan claimed that Zimbabwe were only interested in playing Twenty20 Internationals.

Bangladesh and Zimbabwe were supposed to play three Tests as part of their original series, but it is likely that Zimbabwe will host the Test series in June or July.
