Dhaka:

Australia will play three one-day internationals in Bangladesh soon after the World Cup, but the brief tour does not include any Test matches, the Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Monday.

Australia will arrive in Dhaka on April 4, just two days after the World Cup final in Mumbai, and will play the one-dayers on April 9, 11 and 13 at the Sher-e-Bangladesh stadium.

The first two matches will be played during the day, but the third game will be a day-night affair, a BCB release said.

The series will be preceded by a practice match in Fatullah on April 7.

Australia's first tour of the South Asian nation since 2006 was due to include two Test matches, but these were cancelled by mutual agreement of the two boards.
