A young Afghanistan side is set to travel to Bangladesh for a three-match ODIs and two-match T20I series, starting from February 23.
Bangladesh versus Afghanistan bilateral tournament is set to conclude on March 5.
While all three ODIs will be played at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, the T20I series will be held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka.
The upcoming series will also mark the return of ace batter Tamim Iqbal, who had been out of the Bangladesh squad since July 2021 due to injury.
Fans will also witness a revamped Afghanistan side in the competition as several senior Afghan players like Mohammad Shahzad, Gulbadin Naib, Hashmatullah and Hamid Hassan have been left out from this series.
