India come on June 13

Sports Reporter

The Indian cricket team will arrive in Dhaka on June 13 to play thee one-day-internationals at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. The ODIs will take place on 15, 17 and 19 June.
This will be Bangladesh's first series ever since the formation of the International Cricket Council's (ICC's) new Future Tours Programme. India are likely to send a weakened side with both captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and top order batsman Virat Kohli unlikely to be in the team.
While India has played a number of ODIs in Bangladesh in various tournaments, the last time they played a bilateral ODI series was back in 2007, immediately after the World Cup in which India lost to the Tigers and exited from the first round. After the mega tournament, Bangladesh lost the three-match ODI series 2-0. The last time India played a bilateral Test series against Bangladesh was in 2010 when they won a two-match Test series 2-0.
So far India have played 16 ODIs in Bangladesh and won 14 of them.
