The Cricket Board of Bangladesh constructs extensive Bio-Bubble plans ahead of Bangladesh Vs West Indies Series in Dhaka

West Indies became the first international team to land in Bangladesh after the covid-19 outbreak with a Thirty-Eight-member squad.

The Virus already affected the tour as the West Indies fast bowler Romario Shepherd who was the part of the visitor’s squad came positive before his departure to Bangladesh in Guyana.

After Romario Shepherd got ruled out of the series due to his covid test results, the 24-year-old Barbados fast bowler was chosen to be his replacement.  Due to this pandemic many senior players of West Indies have already backed off from the tour for both One Days and Tests.

There will be a warm up match of one day prior to the first ODI on 20th January at the BKSP ground on January 18th.

There will be a covid-19 Testing before the start of One Day International series and one will take place after seven days of the tour to make sure for the complete safety for the players. According to some reports, Bangladesh Board will also provide some local bowlers for practice and they will stay in mirror bio-bubble along with the ground staff and other servicemen. Both the teams will also go through a covide-19 test before arrival in Chattogram for third One Day International, and more test will happen before the and during Test series also which will happen on next month.

The West Indies have agreed to the conditions applied by the Bangladesh board which includes both dos and don’ts, there will be a good amount of tests and the floor attendants at hotel and catering staff have already been tested negative for covid and the same applies for other servicemen.
