Caribbean Islands will tour Bangladesh in January for three ODIs, two Tests

The news

Visitors will arrive in Dhaka on January 10 and will probably be in-room quarantine for the first three days.

Caribbean Islands will tour Bangladesh for three ODIs and two Tests in January, CWI confirmed on Tuesday after their inspection team reported to the board of directors on what they saw during their brief trip earlier this month. The tour will be shortened from what was originally planned, as there will be one less Test and no T20I series.

The visitors will arrive in Dhaka on January 10, after which they will likely do in-room quarantine for the first three days, followed by four days of training with each other. They will play a warm-up one-day game at the BKSP in Savar, about 40 km north of the capital Dhaka.

The ODIs will be played on January 20, 22 and 25, with the third match to be held at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, which will also host the first Test starting on February 3rd. Prior to the Test series, Caribbean Islands also played a four-day warm-up game at the MA Aziz stadium (also in Chattogram), a field just across the road from the team hotel.

The second Test will take place in Dhaka on 11 February, and the Caribbean Islands are expected to leave the capital on 16 February. This will be Bangladesh’s first international series after the pandemic shut down most of the world. Bangladesh has already had bilateral series against Pakistan, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and Sri Lanka postponed indefinitely, although the BCB has claimed that they are trying to rearrange all these matches.
