Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced the schedule of the first white-ball series against Australia, starting on March 21.

The Australia contingent will arrive in Dhaka on March 17 for the first bilateral series in Bangladesh which is a part of the ICC Women's Championship.

The series comprises three ODIs and an equal number of T20Is which will be staged at Sher e Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur.

Bangladesh will face the Aussies in the first ODI on March 17, followed that the second and third ODI will be played on March 24 and 27 respectively. 

The T20Is will kick off with the first match on March 31 and the remaining matches will be held on April 2 and 4. 

Earlier, the Australian Cricket team announced their 15-member squad for the tour and decided to brought back left-arm spinner Sophie Molineux to the fold.

Molineux recently made a return to the national set-up during the one-off Test against South Africa in Perth. Additionally, fast bowler Tayla Vlaeminck has earned her place in the squad after enduring a challenging period with injuries, poised to make her first international appearance since the beginning of 2022.

Unfortunately, left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen and experienced all-rounder Heather Graham miss out on selection this time. However, selector Shawn Flegler reassured that there will be ample opportunities for both players to make their way back into the international setup.

Australia squad: Alyssa Healy (c), Darcie Brown, Ashleigh Gardner, Kim Garth, Grace Harris (T20s only), Alana King, Phoebe Litchfield, Tahlia McGrath (vc), Sophie Molineux, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Annabel Sutherland, Georgia Wareham, Tayla Vlaeminck
