- There will be three Twenty20 Internationals between Ireland and Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. After that, the series will end with the tourists playing a single Test match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
- Nadel Chowdhury, the chairperson of the BCB’s women’s wing and representative of Sylhet Division in the Bangladesh Cricket Board, confirmed the news to Cricbuzz, saying, “Yes, Ireland will begin the tour with the ODI series that will be played in Sylhet and we are fully prepared for it.”
