At the group stage, Bangladesh are joined in Group A by Afghanistan, Hong Kong and Nepal.
The latter two are both making their World T20 debuts, while this is the third successive tournament the Afghans have qualified for as their meteoric rise has continued.
Both Hong Kong and Nepal are part of the ICC World Cricket League Division Two and came into this tournament by virtue of their final positions at the World T20 Qualifier last year.
Hong Kong finished sixth to take the last qualifying place, while Nepal finished third to reach their first major ICC competition.
In Group B, Zimbabwe will face the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates and Ireland in what promises to be a very tight group indeed.
UAE have qualified for the World T20 for the first time, with their last appearance at a major ICC tournament coming at the 1996 Cricket World Cup.
This is the second time the Dutch have reached the World T20, the last time being 2009 when they took a shock win in the group stage over hosts England.
Finally, ICC Full Members Australia, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and 2012 champions West Indies await in the Super 10.
