Dhaka: Bangladesh will host Zimbabwe and the Windies for back-to-back series later this year, a senior Bangladesh cricket official said on Thursday.
Zimbabwe were originally scheduled to visit in January 2019 but the cricket board brought forward the tour to October avoid any potential clash with national elections.
Bangladesh announced on Wednesday that the Windies would arrive on 15 November for their first full tour to the country since 2012.
"Apart from the West Indies, we've also confirmed the Zimbabwe series in October," said BCB chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury.
"They (Zimbabwe) will play two Tests and three ODIs. It means we will now play back-to-back series this year."
The Windies series will include two Tests, three one-day internationals and three twenty20 internationals between November and December.
The Zimbabwe tour dates have not yet been announced.
