Bangladesh will play a two-day warm-up match beginning on June 27 before the opening Test against Windies starts on July 4. But young Bangladesh spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz is most likely to miss the opening match of the tour as he is yet to get his passport from the American embassy.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board official has confirmed on Friday Miraz would not be able to travel with the team as rest of the players will leave the country later tonight for the tour of West Indies “He 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,” acting team manager Rabid Imam was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
He added on the same, “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.”
To be noted, Tigers will play two Tests, three ODIs and as many Twenty20 Internationals during the tour of West Indies. The series will begin from July 4 with the first Test at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on July 4 and end with the third T20I on August 5.
