Bangladesh national cricket team will arrive in Dhaka today after completing a disappointing series against New Zealand in their own backyard.

Bangladesh are expected to arrive at 11:05am at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on a Singapore Airlines flight.

Head coach Russell Domingo and fielding coach Ryan Cook will not accompany the team as they took a leave from Bangladesh Cricket Board and they are expected to arrive on April 8 or 9, informed a BCB official.

Bangladesh, who were in hunt of their first-ever international win over New Zealand in their country, lost all six games during their limited-over series in the southwestern Pacific Ocean.

The Tigers lost the opening ODI of the three-match series by eight wickets before they staged some fight, only the single time during the entire series but eventually conceded a five-wicket defeat in the second game to lose the series. Bangladesh lost the third ODI by 164 runs to concede a clean sweep while they suffered the same consequences in the T20Is, losing the matches by 66, 28 and 65 runs respectively.
