Tigers will visit New Zealand
Bangladesh cricket team is playing against Pakistan at home after the World Cup. The Pakistan series will end on December 8. Even after this, of course, there is no opportunity to rest.

The Bangladesh national cricket team will fly to New Zealand the day after the Pakistan series.

According to the schedule, the Bangladesh team will go to New Zealand to play a two-match Test series. The fight between the two teams will start from the first day of the new year.

Speaking to media in Mirpur on Thursday about the New Zealand tour, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury Sujan said the tigers will leave the country for New Zealand on the morning of December 9.

New Zealand cricket has brought some relaxation in the quarantine this time.

Bangladesh team was in quarantine for two weeks in the previous tour. This time you have to stay for seven days.

In this regard, Nizamuddin Chowdhury said, "The protocol we had in the last New Zealand series has been relaxed a bit. Rooms need to be quarantined for three to four days. The rest of the time they have to stay in the quarantine center for three to four days. This has given us some extra opportunities.

Our team is getting a chance to play two practice matches. There will be two two-day practice matches. One within themselves, the other with the New Zealand XI. After playing two practice matches, Bangladesh will play the Test match.

The first test will start on January 1, 2022. The first match will be at Mount Maunganui. Then the second Test is from January 9. That will be in Christchurch.

Both matches of the Test series are part of the Test Championship.
