Update West Indies to tour Bangladesh for three ODIs, two Tests

West Indies 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 West Indies eyeing a short tour, both boards agreed to omit 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 wraps up in Chattogram on January 25. The first Test in Chattogram will start from February 3 before the teams move to Dhaka for the final Test from February 11.

Earlier, a two-member inspection team from Cricket West Indies recently expressed satisfaction over the COVID-19 and security protocols set by Bangladesh Cricket Board for the series next month.

BCB is desperate to see the resumption of international cricket with several of their series postponed due to the pandemic. Bangladesh had to cancel their tour of Pakistan in March and then their white-ball tour of Ireland in May as the COVID-19 situation worsened across the globe. That was followed by the postponement of the Sri Lanka tour, the two-match Test series against Australia and New Zealand.

Cricbuzz had earlier reported that BCB has agreed to reduce the quarantine period from 14 days to seven days to allow the visitors enough time to prepare for the series.
