Windies Warm-up Match for Bangladesh Test Series Reduced to Two Days
West Indies’ three-day warm-up match, prior to the Bangladesh Test series, has been reduced to a two-day affair because of the condition of the ground in Savar.
The BSKP ground, which was slated to host the match between the West Indians and a BCB XI from November 8, has not dried sufficiently to be fit for play following a week of wet weather and will now start on Friday.
The BSKP ground in Savar, a town about 40kms north of Dhaka, had hosted tour matches in the past but has poor draining facilities.
No other match on West Indies’ tour of Bangladesh is slated for the venue.
The two-day game will be played on November 9 and 10, ahead of the first Test in Mirpur on November 13.
