Afghanistan team arrived in the country on Saturday morning for their one-off Test against Bangladesh, starting from June 14 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
Following the lone Test, the Afghanistan team are scheduled to travel to India for a series and then return to the country following the Eid-ul-Adha break to play three ODIs and two T20Is next month.
The second phase of the series will resume in Chattogram, with all three ODIs scheduled to be held in the port city's Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. The first ODI will be played on July 5. The second and third ODIs are slated for July 8 and 11.
The T20I series will be played at the Sylhet International Stadium, with the first game on July 14 and the final match on July 16.
Afghanistan have not included Rashid Khan in their 15-member squad for the Test as they opted to rest the star legspinner, who was the hero in their 224-run win over Bangladesh in the only Test ever played between the sides in 2019 in Chattogram.
