India cricket team will host Bangladesh for playing a
Test match from 8 to 12 February 2017. This will be the first Test match
between two teams at Indian soil. Before this, Bangladesh have visited all ICC
Full Member teams for playing Test matches but they never visited India to play
a Test match. Although, they have made tour of India at two occasions for the limited-overs
tournaments - the 2006 Champions Trophy qualifiers and the 2014 World T20 -
since obtaining the Test status in 2000.
The only Test match of
Bangladesh’s tour to India will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket
Stadium in Hyderabad. India and Bangladesh cricket teams have faced each other
in eight Test matches, all in Bangladesh, from which India have been successful
to win six and the other two matches were resulted as draw.
