Dhaka - India will play three one-day internationals against Bangladesh next month ahead of their tour of England, the Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Thursday.

All three matches will be held at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium in Dhaka on June 15, 17, and 19.

"We are delighted to announce that India will be coming here for three ODIs in June," BCB spokesman Jalal Yunus told reporters.

"We look forward to a very good and competitive series."

The tour, agreed in February as part of a bilateral deal between the two countries, has been squeezed in between the June 1 end of India's domestic season and the start of the England tour on June 26.

Indian media reports said the selectors may rest several key players, including captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and star batsman Virat Kohli, and send a new-look team to Bangladesh.

India are due to play five Tests, five one-dayers and a lone Twenty20 international on the 10-week tour of England.
