Bangladesh's last T20 World Cup campaign was disappointing. The eighth T20 World Cup will be held this year. As a result, this event's preparation will start with the next West Indies tour.
The Tigers will tour the West Indies at the end of the Sri Lanka series and play a full series in three formats. The plans for the next T20 World Cup will start with the T20 series of this tour, said chief selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu.
"We don't have many matches to prepare for," he said. “There is the Zimbabwe series after the West Indies series. Then the Asia Cup, then the World Cup. We are moving forward with this in mind. The planning for the World Cup will start from the West Indies series.”
The selectors have prepared the squad for the West Indies tour for that purpose. The chief selector added, “We are almost done with the team formation work. There are three formats. And since there's a lot of work to be done in logistics, we're moving forward. I hope to give a squad of three formats within the next week.”
In other words, the West Indies tour squad will be announced during the Sri Lanka series. Nannu has been faced with the question of whether announcing another team during one series will affect the players.
“The team have to be announced in the middle of the second Test. Because the West Indies is a place where there is a lot of logistical work. You have to prepare mentally that way, you have to proceed that way. There is nothing wrong with that. There is nothing to take negatively. We will try to give the team before the second Test,” he concluded.
