According to the schedule released by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), Pakistan will leave for Bangladesh on 13 April. After coming to Dhaka, they will play a practice match in Fatullah on 15 April. It is yet to be announced who they will play against in the practice match.
However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) agreed to send their team to Bangladesh after the BCB decided to pay the PCB $325,000 as compensation.

It is expected to be a very tough competition between the two teams. Bangladesh cricket team will get the home advantage. They need to improve their position in the ranking ahead of the upcoming Champions Trophy and World Cup.
