BCB has provided the bio-bubble plan to CWI and is waiting for feedback before taking the final decision
Bangladesh Cricket Board is awaiting a reply from Cricket West Indies regarding its national team’s scheduled tour of Bangladesh in January, 2021.
BCB is hoping to resume international cricket in the country by hosting the West Indies for three Test matches, three ODIs and two T20Is.
Cricket’s governing body in the country has already provided the bio-bubble plan to CWI and is waiting for feedback before taking the final decision, informed BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury.
“As per our communication with the West Indies board, we have already sent a bio-bubble plan to them along with the authorities of our government. Once we get the feedback from the West Indies board, we can take the final decision," said Nizamuddin.
“So far what we realized from the West Indies board is that we need to keep the tour short and our main target will be to fulfil what we have on our Future Tours Program. We are working accordingly but we are yet to take a final decision."

Bangabandhu T20 Tournament 2020 is all set to take the field by the end of November.
Though the schedule for the five-team tournament is yet to be finalized, Nizamuddin is confident of finishing the tournament before hosting the Windies.
Cricket got back to the field in the country after a break of seven months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Cricket activities resumed with the 50-over BCB President's Cup.
BCB is gaining confidence from these tournaments as far as ensuring health safety of the cricketers is concerned.
