The Tigers will depart for Zimbabwe this morning to play one Test and five one-day internationals.
Shakib Al Hasan’s men will open their campaign with a three-day warm-up match at Harare starting from July 30.
Bangladesh is going to play Test cricket after a fourteen-month break while Zimbabwe will mark their return to Test cricket after a five-year hiatus with the match against Bangladesh starting from August 4 at Harare.
The African nation has not played a Test match since 2006.
The first three one-day internationals will also take place at Harare on August 12, 14 and 16 and after that the teams will travel to Bulawayo for the last two one-day internationals on August 19 and 21.
Bangladesh played eight Tests against Zimbabwe and their first Test victory came against the African nation in January 2005 in Chittagong. The Tigers, though, lost four of those eight matches.
But the Tigers have had a good record against Zimbabwe in recent times which has given them the upper hand in their limited-over head-to-head record, with 28 wins from 51 matches they have so far played against them.
Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Tamim Iqbal (vice-captain), Imrul Kayes, Junaed Siddiqui, Mohammad Ashraful, Mushfiqur Rahim (wicket-keeper), Mahmudullah, Abdur Razzak, Shafiul Islam, Rubel Hossain, Nazmul Hossain, Shahriar Nafees, Robiul Islam, Shuvogata Hom Chowdhury and Nasir Hossain.
