Bangladesh to visit New Zealand in February next year

Bangladesh is all set to visit New Zealand for a three-match ODIs and as many T20 International in February-March next year, the New Zealand Cricket (NZC) on Tuesday confirmed.

The tour was postponed due to the outbreak of coronavirus
worldwide. However, the T20 World Cup also got postponed, opening
another window for the tour and this time, adding three ODIs also.

NZC are currently working with the government on the bio-security measures that will need to be in place for the touring teams with visitors to the country currently required to isolate for 14 days on arrival, said David White, the NZC CEO.

He also told the media that they are looking for a model similar to that used by the ECB during their ongoing season, which was the first international cricket to resume amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We are making tremendous progress. I was just on the phone to the West Indies, they’re confirmed, Pakistan is confirmed, Australia and Bangladesh… so 37 days of international cricket,” White told the reporters.
