The Bangladesh men's cricket team is gearing up for an intense year

in Test cricket in 2024, with a packed schedule of 14 red-ball matches

over the 2024 calendar year.

This marks a significant increase compared to their previous highest tally of 10 Tests in 2022.

t became an associate member of the ICC in 1977,

and competed in six ICC Trophies but performed inconsistently until 1997

which marked the year of their first major victory, winning the 1997

ICC Trophy held in Malaysia. This set the way of becoming a Test-playing nation, a journey which ended with success in 2000.
