West Indies will play three one-day caps and two tests during their tour of Bangladesh next month. This was confirmed on Tuesday (December 15th). With Cricket West Indies in mind for a brief tour, both boards agreed to drop the Twenty20 International series.
The ODI series begins 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 begins on February 3rd before the teams move to Dhaka for the final test on February 11th.
Previously, a two-person inspection team from Cricket West Indies recently expressed their satisfaction with the COVID-19 and safety protocols set by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for the series over the next month.
BCB is desperate to see international cricket resume as some of their series have been postponed due to the pandemic. Bangladesh had to cancel its Pakistan tour in March and then its White Ball tour of Ireland in May as the COVID-19 situation worsened worldwide. This was followed by the postponement of the Sri Lanka tour, the test series with two games against Australia and New Zealand.
Cricbuzz had previously reported that BCB has agreed to cut the quarantine period from 14 days to seven days so that visitors have enough time to prepare for the series.
