Test series

The Australia cricket team were scheduled to tour Bangladesh from 28 September to 21 October 2015 to play a tour match and two Test matches.

A day before the tour was scheduled to start, the Australian team did not leave their country as Cricket Australia (CA) received information about security concerns. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said that they were surprised by the delay. Sean Carroll, security manager for CA, meet with the Australian High Commissioner in Bangladesh and the Bangladesh government to discuss the concerns. Despite the ongoing concerns regarding the tour, Bangladesh announced their squad on 28 September. The BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury said that "we are expecting all the matches to be played on schedule". On 30 September the Australian cricketers were sent back to their state squads in readiness for the Matador Cup. The BCB said that "the Bangladesh government has committed to additional security on top of the substantial and elaborate arrangements in the BCB's standard Security Plan for international cricket".

On 1 October, Cricket Australia confirmed that the tour had been postponed with a view to re-arrange the matches for a later date.In April 2016, it indicated that it was hoping the tour would go ahead in 2017. In June 2017, Cricket Australia confirmed the tour would take place in August 2017.
