West Indies to visit Bangladesh for first full tour in 6 years

West Indies will have a full tour of Bangladesh since 2012 as the Caribbean side is scheduled to visit the country in November and December of this year for a series of games.

The tour features two Tests, three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20. Before the series starts there will be a two-day practice match.

The last match West Indies played in Bangladesh was during the 2014 World T20. Their last bilateral tour of the country was in 2012-13. West Indies had blanked Bangladesh 2-0 in the Test series then, but the home side fought back to take the ODI series 3-2. West Indies ended the tour with victory in the lone T20I.

The two sides are currently playing each other in the West Indies, where the Caribbean side won the two-match Test series 2-0. However, Bangladesh came back to win the first ODI of the ongoing three-match series. The teams will also play three T20Is.
