Dhaka: New Zealand Cricket will arrive in Bangladesh on September 30, instead of originally planned October 4. This change in the schedule will give Kiwis team more time to acclimatise to subcontinental conditions before the ODI and Test series against Bangladesh.

During the tour, the visitors will play three ODIs and two Tests in Bangladesh.

With the Champions Trophy in Pakistan postponed until 2009, New Zealand have no fixtures before the Bangladesh tour. New Zealand Cricket (NZC) had indicated they were in talks with other boards in order to fill the gap in the schedule. Since weather conditions in New Zealand wouldn't be conducive to cricket, NZC were hoping to touring, however no matches have been confirmed.
