Ahead of the tour, a two-member advanced security team, led by Sean Carroll and Frank Demasi, arrived Bangladesh on Tuesday and continue their inspection to confirm an alternative venue for the two-day tour match on 22-23 August as the previously selected venue, Khan Saheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah has been waterlogged.

The first Test between Bangladesh and Australia will be played from August 27 at Dhaka, followed by the second Test beginning September 4 at Chittagong.
