Dhaka: Bangladesh will host Zimbabwe and the West Indies for back-to-back series later this year, a senior Bangladesh cricket official said on Thursday.

Bangladesh announced on Wednesday that the West Indies would arrive on November 15 for their first full tour to the country since 2012. "Apart from the West Indies, we've also confirmed the Zimbabwe series in October," said BCB chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury.

"They (Zimbabwe) will play two Tests and three ODIs. It means we will now play back-to-back series this year."
