The Shaheed Chandu Stadium in Bogra is set to host international cricket matches during the Sri Lanka tour of Bangladesh in February-March, reports BDNEWS.
Sri Lanka is scheduled to arrive here February 17 to play three ODIs and two Tests series against Bangladesh.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has already sent the itinerary of the tour of Sri Lanka to Bangladesh. Bogra, Chittagong and Dhaka have been selected as venues.
BCB general secretary Mahbub Anam told reporters without naming the venues, "We have already sent the itinerary of Sri Lanka tour that include two ODIs in Bogra, one ODI and one Test in Chittagong and one Test in Dhaka."
He added that the hosting matches in three cities depend on subject to the approval of International Cricket Council (ICC) after ICC match referee Roshan Mahanama submitting his observation about country's five new cricket venues.
Mahbub said that they had kept the alternative of hosting the matches in different venues if the ICC would not give the approval of the venues in three towns.
BCB general secretary, however, are confident that a number of venues might be approved by the ICC.
ICC match referee Roshan Mahanama inspected all five new venues -- Shaheed Chandu Stadium in Bogra, Khulna Divisional Stadium, Chittagong Divisional Stadium, Fatullah Cricket Stadium and Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium -- and would leave early Friday to submit the reports to ICC.
The former Sri Lankan batsman Mahanama said, "I inspected all five venues and can't give any comment to you due to code of conduct of ICC."
