Bangladesh to Play Warm-Up Matches Before T20 World Cup 2021

T20 World Cup 2021: Bangladesh to Play Warm-Up Matches in Oman

The Tigers will board a flight to Oman shortly before the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Bangladesh is set to play warm-up matches to adapt to the updated information condition before the T20 World Cup 2021 Qualifying round. However, the whole plan will go ahead at the behest of coach Russell Domingo.

Bangladesh started its T20 World Cup 2021 mission in Oman on 16 October with a qualifying match. The opponent in the first match is Scotland. The other two opponents in the qualifying round are Papua New Guinea and Oman. All the matches of the qualifying round will be held in Oman. The Super Twelve will be played in the United Arab Emirates.

Despite being in a drawn game, Bangladesh is playing most of the matches before the World Cup on slow wickets at home. On top of that, England’s Bangladesh tour was postponed and three more T20s were missed before the World Cup.

However, Bangladesh is going to Oman before making up the shortfall. Arriving at least a week ago, the Tigers will also play a match in the gap of the preparation camp. Basically, this is the goal of the plan.

Speaking to reporters in Mirpur today (August 21), Akram Khan, head of the BCB’s cricket management division, said, “We are in a very good preparation ahead of the World Cup. Playing against teams like Australia, New Zealand before the World Cup; I also visited Zimbabwe. ‘

‘I will go to the World Cup venue first to prepare. By the grace of God, the preparation is going well. I will go to Oman 7-8 days ago, that’s for sure. That’s why I’m going first. The plan has not been finalized yet. We will do as the coach wants. ‘
