Dhaka: Afghanistan will host Bangladesh for three T20 Internationals in Dehradun prior to the strife-torn nation’s historic one-off Test against India.
The Afghanistan cricket team, which has had its training base in India since 2015, will play their matches on June 3, 5 and 7 in the northern Indian city of Dehradun.
"ACB is delighted to host Bangladesh for the T20I series in Dehradun in early June which will be a good opportunity for both sides to play competitive cricket," Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) chairman Atif Mashal said in a statement.
Afghanistan cricket CEO Shafiq Stanikzai said selectors would pick from the pool of players currently taking part in a training camp in India.
Bangladesh Cricket Board chief executive Nizam Uddin Chowdhury said he was looking forward to "a very competitive series".
Afghanistan and Bangladesh have only met once previously in the shortest format, with the latter winning by nine wickets at the 2014 ICC World Twenty20.
Afghanistan, who became a full ICC member along with Ireland last year, will play the first Test match in their history -- against top-ranked India -- starting June 14 in Bangalore.
