Bangladesh Women's team will host India for a five-match T20I series in April-May 2024 following the Australia series.

According to the draft itinerary, the Indian team will arrive on April 25 for the non-ICC Future Tour Programme series. The matches will be played between April 28 to May 9 and all the matches are probably to be held in Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. 

Habibul Bashar, who has recently been appointed as the head of women's cricket at Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), stated that Bangladesh has a great chance to gear up for the upcoming T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to be played in October.

"I think this will be an opportunity for us to know where we stand ahead of the T20 World Cup by playing against Australia and India. We are looking forward to compete against them and if we can achieve a positive result, certainly it will boost the confidence of our team considering everyone knows the value of beating teams like India and Australia," Bashar told Cricbuzz.

Bangladesh are set to host Australia in March which includes three ODIs and as many T20Is. The series will kick off with the first ODI from March 21.

The series will conclude with the last game of the three-match T20I series which will be played on April 4. All the games of the Australia series will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
