Bangladesh A team previously toured the West Indies in August 2022 for a two-match test series and a three-match ODI series.
Where both of the two test matches between the teams were drawn. And while West Indies won the first match of the three-match ODI series by four wickets to lead the series, Bangladesh cricket team came back to win the series by 44 runs in the second match, but the third and final ODI match of the series was abandoned due to rain, thus the series was declared between the two teams.
West Indies tours of Bangladesh have not been very pleasant in recent times. The senior team lost the series against the Bangladesh cricket team a few months ago now let’s see how their junior team performs. It remains to be seen how competitive the match between the two teams will be at Sylhet’s sporting wicket.
