The confirmation of the upcoming series comes after both BCB and Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) mutually agreed to postpone the two-match series originally scheduled for this year to next year.

it will be the first Test series between the sides since 2018.

The last time the two teams played against each other in a bilateral T20I series was in July 2022 in Harare, when Zimbabwe defeated Bangladesh 2-1.

Bangladesh will start their T20 World Cup campaign on June 8 against Sri Lanka scheduled in Dallas. They are part of Group D along with Nepal, Netherlands, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
