Bangladesh national cricket team
The current round of ICC FTP fixtures will end in 2023. The 2023 ODI World Cup in India in October-November would be the final major tournament in this cycle. The new four-year cycle (2024–2027) will begin the following year. The BCB Operations Committee Chairman Jalal Yunus told the media on Sunday (April 17) that a brief discussion on the next cycle's FTP fixture was undertaken during the most recent ICC meeting. Almost 200 international matches were proposed for the Bangladesh national men's cricket team for the next cycle during the discussion. Proposed FTP matches for the Bangladesh National Men’s Cricket Team Bangladesh men's team is scheduled to play 160 matches in the current cycle, including 44 Tests, 59 One-Day Internationals, and 57 Twenty-20 Internationals. However, the fixtures were later revised due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. As per Jalal Yunus, Bangladesh will get nearly the same number of Test matches in the next cycle, but the number of ODI and T20I matches would significantly increase. Read Root quits as England test cricket captain after 5 years Bangladesh will play 40+ Tests, 70+ ODIs, and 76+ T20Is in the 2024–2027 cycle, as per initial discussions. BCB is also interested in competing in a number of tri-nation series. Besides, Bangladesh will compete in the T20I World Cups in 2024 and 2026, as well as the ICC Men's Champions Trophy in 2025 and the ICC One-Day International World Cup in 2027. The FTP fixtures will not include the matches for these events. Therefore, Bangladesh will play more limited-overs matches during this cycle. Possibility of away series in Australia and England Bangladesh Cricket Board is eager to play bilateral series against top cricket nations outside of Bangladesh. Playing a series in Australia and England is one of their top ambitions. Bangladesh last played a bilateral series in Australia in 2008. They didn't get the chance to play at major Australian cricket venues, as their matches were played at unknown grounds. On the other hand, Bangladesh last visited England in 2010. Read Mohammedan’s Mushfiqur set to play for Sheikh Jamal Bangladesh will most likely travel to Australia in 2027 for a bilateral series, according to Jalal Yunus. Prior to that, Australia will play a series in Bangladesh in 2026. On the other hand, BCB has yet to reach an agreement for a possible tour in England. The two bodies are still negotiating, but the Bangladesh Cricket Board is attempting to convince the ECB to play a series in England. Apart from that, Bangladesh will likely travel to Pakistan, South Africa, and the West Indies to play a series. Bottom Line Bangladesh will get a significant number of Test and Twenty20 matches in the forthcoming cycle, according to BCB Operations Committee Chairman Jalal Yunus. Bangladesh's favourite format is the One-Day International, but they won't be able to play enough ODIs in the upcoming cycle as per expectations. Apart from that, the Bangladesh men's national team will likely get a chance to play in Australia and England. Hopefully, the next ICC FTP fixtures would help Bangladesh cricket in reaching new heights. Read Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League 2022: Meet the Favourites

Both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka advanced to the Super 12s stage playing in Round 1. Bangladesh beat the hosts Oman and Papua New Guinea in Round 1 but lost to Scotland while Sri Lanka beat all three teams— Ireland, Netherlands and Namibia in Round 1. Right before the World Cup began, Bangladesh lost a warm-up match against Sri Lanka, which added an extra dimension to Sunday’s match. Sri Lanka also played their Round 1 games in the UAE, which might help them a bit. But Bangladesh’s head coach said they are not bothered about the result of Round 1. “I don’t think what happened in the first round counts so much in the main event now. Both teams are starting from scratch from tomorrow,” he said on Saturday. “We have had some good contests against them in ODIs and Tests. We have a well-balanced side with skilful bowlers and some dangerous batters. We have a world-class allrounder in Shakib (Al Hasan). These types of conditions can suit us. Sharjah is similar to the wickets in Dhaka. Hopefully, that can assist us in tomorrow’s game.”
The chief selector of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), Minhajul Abedin, has said a defeat in the warm-up is nothing to be worried about. The Bangladesh national cricket team is playing two warm-up matches ahead of the T20 World Cup which is set to begin in Oman on October 17.

So this is not a big deal.” According to Minhajul, the Bangladesh team will be able to prepare well before the World Cup takes the field. “It’s a good luck that we are playing a few practice matches ahead of the World Cup. I believe that we can prepare ourselves well ahead of the main event starts. We also have another practice match on October 14, I hope we can do well,” Minhajul told the media.

But I need to be selected to playing XI first. If I get a chance I’ll give my hundred per cent to do well. My initial goal will be to not concede many runs, and the wickets will come along the way.” Since his T20I debut earlier this year, Shoriful played a total of 11 matches so far and bagged 17 wickets with the best figures of taking three wickets for 33 runs. Like the young left-handed pacer, another left-handed bowler Nasum Ahmed is also upbeat to prove his worth.
