Dhaka: India and South Africa will join hosts Bangladesh in a three-nation Limited Overs tournament in Dhaka in April next year, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) sources said on Monday.

The April 1 to 15 event will be followed by South Africa's first Test tour of Bangladesh which will include two Tests and three One-day Internationals between April 15 and May 10. South Africa will visit Bangladesh after hosting the World Cup in February and March. Bangladesh, the youngest of the 10 Test-playing nations, begins a hectic schedule from July, which includes tours of Sri Lanka and South Africa and a home series against the West Indies this year. Meanwhile, two former Pakistani stars, bowler Mohsin Kamal and batsman Ali Zia, have taken charge of Bangladesh cricket team following the sacking of Trevor Chappell of Australia last month. Bangladesh has lost 10 of its 11 Tests so far, the only draw against Zimbabwe coming from a rain-hit Test earlier this year.
