India will be visiting neighbors Bangladesh for a short tour which will have one off test match and 3 Odi matches starting from 10th June 2015 with the only test match in Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah. Bangladesh cricket board wanted atleast two test match series but BCCI were reluctant to offer anything more than a test match and a 3 ODI match series. India are likely to send a second string team to Bangladesh for the ODI’s but a full strength test team will take the field under Virat Kohli captaincy.
This will be the first series for Indian cricket team after their World Cup 2015 campaign, while Bangladesh will be quite confident having won the T20, ODI series against Pakistan and they also manage to draw the first test match against Pakistan.
