The National Stadium at Providence, EBD will, for the first time ever, host a day/night One Day International (ODI) match on July 25, when the Windies and Bangladesh clash.
These two teams will also play another One Day International (day) match at Providence on July 22, which would comprise two of the three ODIs in their itinerary. The last ODI is scheduled for play at Warner Park in St Kitts on July 28.
The Bangladesh tour of Two Tests, three ODIs and one Twenty20 International was initially scheduled for February, but a change was necessitated by the World Cup Qualifiers scheduled for March in Zimbabwe.
Bangladesh have last toured the Caribbean in August/September 2014, on an identical tour. The hosts had swept the Tests and ODIs before the lone T20 was abandoned due to rain. Bangladesh are currently ranked seventh by the ICC on the ODI charts, ahead of Sri Lanka and the West Indies.
International cricket was last played at Providence back in April 2017, when the Windies lost the three-match ODI series 2-1 to Pakistan.
International cricket will again be held in this country when Guyana co-hosts the Women’s T20 World Cup, to be played from November 3-24. International cricket also returns to Florida, at the Central Broward Regional Park, as reigning ICC World Twenty20 champions, Windies, will face Bangladesh in two T20 Internationals under the lights.
The Bangladesh tour immediately follows a three-Test series against Sri Lanka, which includes the first ever day/night Test in the Caribbean when the final match of the Series is contested in Barbados.
Tickets for matches in the Sri Lanka and Bangladesh series will go on sale at the end of May.
