But, before travelling New Zealand, BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board) wants to give their players an almost same environment which would give the Tigers extra advantage. So, they decided to move to Australia for a week before touring New Zealand. So, they toured Australia just after BPL T20 2016 finished and stayed there a week. They played two warm up match there against Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunders but lost their second match with Sydney Thunders.

However, though they lost one warm up match and failed to utilize proper practice Saturday at Sydney due to bad weather and which means they did not have proper camping session. But, Mashrafe is somewhat satisfied in this training session and hopeful that it will help them in New Zealand because there environment is almost same of Australia. Through this camp, team bangladesh has adapted the environment and also would be familiar in New Zealand.

Earlier today, Mashrafe who is the current ODI skipper of Bangladesh has revealed about their preparatory camp in Sydney that their main target was to be familiar with the environment though, it will be some different than New Zealand but would probably help them to adapt it. So, he is thinking that their target is completely successful and his teammates are used to it.

Still, Bangladesh has lost one warm up match out of two but the ODI captain of the Tigers is not thinking much about it. He has placed a reference that they lost against some club teams just before of 2015 world cup but the Tigers were not affected by that later. But from that lost, they learned many things which gave them some advantage. So, through this match in Sydney, it would help to play good cricket in New Zealand tour.
