Bangladesh’s players won’t have much time to relax before the domestic series against Ireland because they have three T20Is and three ODIs against England at home from March 1 to 14.

The first two One Day Internationals of the series will be played on March 1 and 3 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka by Jos Buttler’s team. On March 6, they will play the last match of the 50-over series at Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.
