The West Indies are scheduled to visit Bangladesh in January next year. Given the challenges of Corona, the 3-match Test series between the two countries can be changed to a 2-match series. Cricket West Indies (CWI) said on Monday that talks are going on with the Bangladesh Cricket Board about this.
According to the ICC’s Future Tour Program, part of the Series World Test Championship , the tour is scheduled to take place in January 2021. Both teams will play three Tests, three One-Day and two T20 matches. The Test series is part of the World Championship, whose final will be played in June 2021.
CWI President Ricky Skerritt told ESPNcricinfo that there is an option to play three to two Tests, but a final decision has not been taken yet. It will be decided in the next few days.
Want to send our best team to Bangladesh: Skerrit
He said the problem is that we have to see it all the way, it includes Kovid-19, program and cost. The pressure Kovid-19 has put on world cricket at this time is very important for revenue. We want to come to Bangladesh because we respect relations and bilateral agreements. Ricky, however, said he wants to send his best team to Bangladesh.
He said that I want to assure you that we want to send our best team available on any tour, including Bangladesh. We believe that visiting Bangladesh is always challenging because the environment there is very different from our conditions.
Currently on tour to New Zealand, the team
has reached New Zealand to play a series of 3 T20 and 2 Test matches. Both teams are currently in Quarantine. The first T20 between the two will be played in Auckland on 27 November, the second and third T20 on 29 and 30 November in Mount Maunganui. After this, the first Test match between the two will be played in Auckland from 3 December and the second Test in Wellington from 11 December.
