New Zealand Cricket on Thursday announced the revised schedule for Bangladesh's upcoming tour of New Zealand, which has now been postponed by a week to give the board more adequate preparation time to deal with the challenges related to Covid-19.

The tour, which was earlier scheduled to begin on March 13 will now start on March 20. The visitors will continue to play the same number of matches 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is between March 20 and April 1 now.

This rescheduled dates will provide for “adequate preparation” the board said in its statement.

"To accommodate the necessary logistics, the Bangladesh tour will now begin seven days later than initially scheduled, following a five-day training camp at Queenstown, with matches to be played at the venues first planned, but on different dates," the NZC said in a statement.

This will be Bangladesh's first visit to New Zealand since their 2019 tour was cut short following the shooting attack on a mosque, which players narrowly avoided the day before the scheduled third Test at Christchurch.

After Bangladesh complete a five-day training camp in Queenstown, they will begin the ODI series on March 20 at Dunedin's University Oval. The second ODI will be played on March 23 at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval with the decider on March 26 at Wellington’s Basin Reserve.

The T20Is will be played on March 28 (Seddon Park, Hamilton), March 30 (McLean Park, Napier) and April 1 (Eden Park, Auckland).
