Bangladesh head coach Chandika Hathurusingha wants his side to excel in every conditions and he believes Sylhet tracks are a preferable venue for preparation ahead of the Ireland series.

Bangladesh will hold a  a three-day conditioning camp at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium from April 27-29. The national players will leave Dhaka on Wednesday except for Shakib al Hasan, Liton Das and Mustafizur Rahman.

“When we played in Sylhet, we got some pitches, which I felt were the closest to England wickets. That's why we thought we'd practice there. Another thing is the weather. It's very hot in Mirpur. Besides, there are many matches here. I don't get the kind of wickets I want here,”

"It's not just about England's condition, it's about our overall development. There is no need to worry about the opponent and the result. We want to improve, after all. Wherever we play in the future, we want to improve. We have a lot of games ahead, especially some Tests outside the country,” 

Bangladesh will play a three-match ODI series against Ireland and it will be hosted by England, considering the inclement weather back in Ireland. 

The three ODIs, which will be held at Chelmsford, the venue of Essex Cricket
Club, are the part of ICC ODI Super League.
