Cricket West Indies Announces Squad and Schedule for Bangladesh Tour

Cricket West Indies announces the Test and ODI squad and schedule for the upcoming Bangladesh tour. West Indies are scheduled to play three ODIs and two Tests from January 20 2021 in Chattogram and Dhaka. Windies and Bangladesh are scheduled to play a warm-up match on January 18.

West Indies Test captain Jason Holder, limited-overs captain Kieron Pollard, and Test vice-captain Roston Chase are among ten players who have pulled out of the upcoming tour of Bangladesh amid Covid-19 concerns.

Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks, Sheldon Cottrell, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, and Nicholas Pooran are the other players who “declined the opportunity to tour due to Covid-19 related concerns or personal fears,” according to a CWI release.

In the absence of the star players, Kraigg Brathwaite will captain the West Indies Test side while Jason Mohammed will skipper the ODI team for their upcoming tour of Bangladesh.

Two players have earned their first ODI call-ups – all-round left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein, and Kjorn Ottley, a left-handed top-order batsman.

The West Indies touring party is due to arrive in Dhaka on January 10 and the series will run until February 15.
