The Windies are scheduled to tour Bangladesh in January-February for a full series involving three Tests, three ODIs and two T20Is

Bangladesh Cricket Board will soon send a Covid-19 management plan to the West Indies Cricket in relation to the side’s scheduled tour of Bangladesh in January, 2021.

BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury informed that a decision on the series will finally be taken after the BCB send their plan. 

Cricket was put on hold in the country since mid-March due to the Covid-19 pandemic until the national team regrouped for the tour of Sri Lanka. 

The tour however, was postponed as BCB was not ready to comply with the strict Covid-19 rules of Sri Lanka and instead staged a three-team 50-over tournament that was completed earlier this week. 

BCB is now planning to hold a five-team Twenty20 tournament in the middle of next month.

These domestic events are being held maintaining strict health protocol and a bio-security bubble developed by the BCB medical team.

There was no compromise of health security during the three-team 50-over tournament and a similar plan is to be set in motion for the T20 tournament which will involve a bigger group of players and team officials. 

“You have already seen the way the three-team tournament was held. Now we are aiming to have a five-team tournament which will be followed by an international series as per the International Cricket Council’s Future Tours Program. We are scheduled to host the West Indies [in January next year],” said Nizamuddin to the media Wednesday at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka.

“We are in touch with the West Indies cricket board. We will soon send them our Covid-19 management plan. Then we, the two boards, will discuss and come to a decision,” said the BCB CEO.

The West Indies are scheduled to tour Bangladesh in January-February for a full series involving three Test matches, three ODIs and two T20Is.
