As a result, they have only two series left in the competition. The Bangladesh team has already completed their series against Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, the West Indies, New Zealand, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. They will play Ireland and England in their final two series, respectively. Let's take a look at the completed series results and the match schedules for the upcoming matches. Results Bangladesh vs West Indies (Bangladesh won the series 3-0/home) New Zealand vs Bangladesh (New Zealand won the series 3-0/away) Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka (Bangladesh won the series 2-1/home) Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh (Bangladesh won the series 3-0/away) Bangladesh vs Afghanistan (Bangladesh won the series 2-1/home) South Africa vs Bangladesh (Bangladesh won the series 2-1/away) Read SA vs BAN 2022: Bangladesh’s Top Five Performers From South Africa Tour Remaining Fixtures 3-match ODI series between Bangladesh and England (March 2023/Home) 3-match ODI series between Ireland and Bangladesh (May 2023/away) Bottom Line Bangladesh should focus more on the Ireland series in order to gain as many points as possible, as England at home would be a difficult series for them. However, Bangladesh have a strong home record in the recent ODI series, thus England will find it difficult to match the hosts. Team Tigers would have a great chance to finish among the top eight teams in the points standings if they can earn 40 more points in the two remaining series. If it happens, Bangladesh would qualify for the 2023 World Cup in India by participating in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. Read Is Mominul Haque the right man to lead Bangladesh's Test team?
