Bangladesh spinner Mehidy Hasan will most likely miss the team’s warm-up game ahead of the first Test against the West Indies as he is still waiting to get his passport from the American embassy.
According to a Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) official, Mehidy did not get his required visa ahead of the team’s departure for the Caribbean on Friday.
The Tigers will play a two-day warm-up fixture from Wednesday before the first of two Tests against the Windies starts in Antigua from 4 July.
Bangladesh team manager Rabeed Imam told Cricbuzz: “He (Mehedy) is yet to obtain the passport from the embassy. He is expected to take the next available flight as soon as he gets the passport from the embassy.
“As the embassy’s next working day is only on Sunday, it is unlikely that he will be available for the practice game that we will take part in.”
Bangladesh will also play three ODIs and three T20Is on their tour to the Caribbean.
