After the two-month long Indian Premier League 2014, India will travel to Bangladesh for a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series in mid-June.

Bangladesh will host India on June 15,17 and 19 for three ODIs ahead of India's departure to England on June 22 for five Tests, five ODIs and one T20.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli are expected to be given rest ahead of their long tour to England and one of Rohit Sharma or Ravichandran Ashwin are expected to lead the side.

"We want to give some practice to our players (who are now playing only IPL games--T20 matches), as the England tour is pretty long, lasting for two-and-half months," BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said.
