The three-match T20I series between the hosts West Indies and Bangladesh is all set to begin Saturday at Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica.
Bangladesh already reached the island to play the first two matches of the series. The series opener is slated for Saturday. The next match will take place Sunday at the same venue.
The third and last match of the series is scheduled to be played on July 7 at the Providence Stadium, Guyana.
The members of the Bangladesh limited-overs team had to go through a perilous sea journey to reach Dominica. At least three members of the team suffered seasickness and motion sickness during the five-hour ferry journey across the Atlantic.
However, according to the latest update from the Bangladesh Cricket board, all the players are doing well after reaching Dominica.
Before this series, Bangladesh and the West Indies took on each other in 13 matches, with Bangladesh winning five of them. The Tigers played three T20Is in the West Indies but failed to win any of those matches.
The West Indies are at number seven in the ICC T20 Team Rankings and Bangladesh at number eight.
After the three-match T20I series, both teams will lock horns in a three-match ODI series which will be played on July 10, 13, and 16.
