The West Indies will tour Bangladesh for three ODIs and two tests in January, the CWI confirmed on Tuesday after their inspection team reported to the board on what they saw during their short trip earlier this month. The tour will be shorter than originally scheduled, as there will be less testing and no T20I series.

Visitors will arrive in Dhaka on January 10, after which they will probably quarantine in the room for the first three days, followed by four days of training between them. They will play a one-day warm-up game at the BKSP in Savar, about 40 km north of the capital Dhaka.

The ODIs will be played on January 20, 22 and 25, with the third game taking place at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in the Chattogram, which will also host the first test on February 3. Prior to the series of tests, the West Indies played a four-day warm-up game at the MA Aziz Stadium (also in the Chattogram), a field just opposite the team’s hotel.

The second test will take place in Dhaka on February 11, and the West Indies are expected to leave the capital on February 16. This will be the first international series in Bangladesh since the pandemic hit most of the world. Bangladesh has already had bilateral series against Pakistan, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and Sri Lanka postponed indefinitely, although BCB has claimed that it is trying to rearrange all these matches.
