Afghanistan to host Bangladesh in Dehradun

The three-match T20I series between hosts Afghanistan and Bangladesh will begin on June 3 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun, India.

The announcement came on Wednesday (May 9) after both cricket boards came to an agreement. The matches will be held on June 3, 5 and 7.

The three games precede Afghanistan’s Test debut against India in Bengaluru on June 14.

This is the first bilateral T20I series between Afghanistan and Bangladesh. The teams have faced each other in only one T20I before, with Bangladesh registering a nine-wicket win during the World T20 in 2014. Bangladesh, however, is ranked 10th in T20Is – two places below Afghanistan.

First T20I – June 3, 2018, at 12:30 PM GMT

Second T20I – June 5, 2018, at 12:30 PM GMT
