Windies delegates in Dhaka to assess conditions

Two delegates, sent by the West Indies Cricket Board, arrived in Dhaka today morning to assess conditions ahead of a potential tour of the Caribbean side to the country at the start of next year.

Dr. Akshai Mansingh -- a director and medical team member of the West Indies Cricket Board and also the ICC medical team -- and Paul Sloway -- security and safety manager -- are the two delegates sent by the Windies board. 

BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury had earlier reiterated that the board was willing to complete the tour in a short time. While the tour was originally slated to have three Tests, three ODIs and two T20Is, there is a possibility that it will be a two-Test series in order to accommodate the tour schedule within a short period.

Following a seven-month halt due to the coronavirus pandemic, cricket in the country returned through the 50-over BCB President's Cup. However, it was in March this year that Bangladesh had an international series, with the Tigers hosting Zimbabwe.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) had already sent a bio-bubble plan to Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the health authorities of the government and was awaiting a feedback before making the final decision.
