The Bangladesh Cricket Board and New Zealand Cricket Board have developed a regular cricketing relationship over the past few years. The upcoming tour of Bangladesh vs New Zealand will consist of a three-match ODI series and a three-match T20 series in December.

Before that, the New Zealand Test team will be visiting Bangladesh right after the conclusion of the ODI World Cup in November. They will play a two-match Test series there in late November and early December.

This will mark Bangladesh’s sixth visit to New Zealand in the last eight years, demonstrating the growing cricketing ties between the two nations. In the 2015-16 season, Bangladesh played a three-match ODI and T20I series, as well as a two-match Test series in New Zealand.

In 2019, they had three ODIs and two Tests, followed by another set of three ODIs and T20Is in 2021. Last year, there was a two-match Test series at the beginning of the year, and a tri-nation T20 series in October.

Regarding New Zealan’s cricketing schedule for the season, they have already started with a tour of Bangladesh. Following that, they will play a five-match T20 series against Pakistan, two Tests against South Africa, and three T20s and two Tests against Australia. It seems like a packed and exciting cricket calendar for New Zealand.
