Caribbean Islands will play three One-Day Internationals and two Tests during their tour of Bangladesh next month, it was confirmed on Tuesday (December 15). With Cricket Caribbean watching a short tour, both boards agreed to skip the Twenty20 International series.
The ODI series will start on January 20 and the first two matches will be played in Dhaka before the series ends in Chattogram on January 25. The first Test in Chattogram will start on February 3rd before the teams move to Dhaka for the final Test on February 11th.
Earlier a two-member inspection team from Cricket Caribbean Islands recently expressed satisfaction with the COVID-19 and security protocols set by Bangladesh Cricket Board for the series next month.
BCB desperately sees the resumption of international cricket with some of their series delayed due to the pandemic. Bangladesh had to cancel its tour of Pakistan in March and then its white ball tour in Ireland in May, as the situation of COVID-19 worsened all over the world. This was followed by the postponement of the Sri Lankan tour, the two-match Test series against Australia and New Zealand.
Cricbuzz previously reported that BCB has agreed to reduce the quarantine period from 14 days to seven days to allow visitors enough time to prepare for the series.
