Bangladesh National Cricket Team will visit New Zealand in March next to play three ODIs and as many T20s with the Kiwis.

New Zealand Cricket published the itinerary of the tour on Tuesday.

The good news came within 24 hours into the postponement of the Tigers’ Sri Lanka tour over quarantine issue.

The New Zealand men's team's home season will begin on November 27 at Eden Park and conclude on March 21 at Seddon Park.

West Indies will be the first to arrive in the country, with the Caribbean side scheduled to play three T20Is and two Tests. 

Bangladesh will start their series on March 13 and end on March 28 through the last T20.

The Tigers last toured New Zealand in February-March, 2019.

However, they returned home without completing the tour following the terrorist attack.

The tour itinerary:

Sat, 13 Mar - 1st ODI, University of Otago Oval, Dunedin
Wed, 17 Mar - 2nd ODI, Hagley Oval, Christchurch
Sat, 20 Mar - 3rd ODI, Basin Reserve, Wellington
Tue, 23 Mar - 1st T20I, McLean Park, Napier
Fri, 26 Mar - 2nd T20I, Eden Park, Auckland
Sun, 28 Mar - 3rd T20I, Seddon Park, Hamilton

Meanwhile, the Bangladesh team’s Sri Lanka tour has been postponed as the two boards failed to reach an understanding over the Tigers’ quarantine issue, said Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul Hassan on Monday.

The BCB was not ready to make any compromise over the quarantine issue.
