West Indies announce full tour of Bangladesh
The West Indies will visit Bangladesh in November and December this year for their first full tour of the nation since 2012.
The tour kicks off with a pair of two-day practice matches ahead of a brace of Test matches which will be followed by three ODIs and Three T20Is.
The November to December window in the Bangladesh home schedule had been left open over fears of instability during the planned elections in the country.
Zimbabwe will visit the Asian country in October while Janaury is set to be consumed by the Bangladesh Premier League.
The Windies last touched down in Bangladesh for the 2014 World T20 and last played Test cricket there way back in 2012/13 when they swept a two-match series 2-0.
On that tour the West Indies lost a closely contested ODI series 3-2 before claiming the solitary T20I.
The Windies have welcomed Bangladesh to their shores for a full bilateral series though July into August this year, claiming the Test series before the visitors took the opening ODI.
