The Bangladesh Cricket Board and Cricket Australia announced today that the Aussies will play a three-day tour match in Fatullah from October 3 before Tests in the coastal city of Chittagong (October 9-13) and the capital Dhaka (October 17-21).
It will be just the third Test series between the two nations and the first since Australia's 2-0 victory in Bangladesh in 2006.
The series has been squeezed in between the one-day component of Australia's tour of the UK, which finishes on September 13, and the Commonwealth Bank Test series against New Zealand, which starts in Brisbane on November 5.
