After the ICC T20 World Cup, the Afghanistan Cricket Board was scheduled to host Bangladesh for two Test matches, three ODIs, and three T20Is.

Bangladesh will only be playing in eight Tests in 2024 instead of the twelve that were originally planned, along with additional white-ball assignments. This comes after they decided to play just five Twenty20 international matches instead of their scheduled two-match Test series against Zimbabwe in May.

"The away series against Afghanistan will be rescheduled after both boards agreed to play the series at some other point of time," BCB cricket operations chairman Jalal Yunus confirmed

After the T20 World Cup, Bangladesh will visit Pakistan for a two-match Test series, and then they will trip India for a series consisting of two Tests and three T20Is. Despite this, Bangladesh will still have a busy 2024. Bangladesh will play two Tests and three ODIs and three T20Is in the West Indies in November and December, respectively, after hosting South Africa for a two-match Test series in October.

Shakib al Hasan, the all-around superstar, has told the board that he is prepared to play frequently for Bangladesh in all forms, which has given the team a major boost. With the current two-match Test series against Sri Lanka, Shakib returned to Test cricket after a year away. He chose to play the second Test after missing the first. Previously, he had not participated in the whole white-ball series.
