The West Indies will play three One-Day International and two Test during their Bangladesh tour next month, it was confirmed on Tuesday (December 15). With Cricket West Indies featuring a short tour, both boards have decided to omit the Twenty20 International series.
The ODI series will start on January 20th and the first two games will be played in Dhaka before the series ends in Chattogram on January 25th. The first Test in Chattogram will start on February 3rd before the teams move to Dhaka for the Final Test from February 11th.
Previously, a two-member inspection team from Cricket West Indies recently expressed satisfaction with COVID-19 and the safety protocols established by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for next month’s series.
The BCB is desperate to see international cricket resume with many of its series postponed due to the pandemic. Bangladesh had to cancel the Pakistan tour in March and then the white ball tour of Ireland in May, as the COVID-19 situation worsened around the world. This was followed by the postponement of the tour to Sri Lanka, the series of two test matches against Australia and New Zealand.
Cricbuzz had previously reported BCB agreed to reduce the quarantine period from 14 days to seven days to give visitors enough time to prepare for the series.
