Tigers head coach Domingo to arrive next week

DHAKA —Tigers head coach Russell Domingo is set to return to Bangladesh next Friday, just two days before the national team starts its training session for the upcoming home series against West Indies.

Domingo left the country after the Bangabandhu T20 Cup to spend his Christmas holiday with his family.

However two coaches of Bangladesh coaching staffs—trainer Julian Calefato and head of physical performance Nick Lee have already arrived in Bangladesh today.

Along with Doming, pace bowling coach Ottis Gibson and fielding coach Ryan Cook will also return to the country.

The coaches won’t have to stay in mandatory 14-day quarantine as the BCB took special permission for them from the government.

They would have to undergo a Covid-19 test upon their return to the country and if they return negative, they could join the team straightway.
Bangladesh will start the practice session for the series on January 10, a day when the West Indies team will also land for two Tests and three-match ODI series.

The West Indies will start their month-long tour in Bangladesh with a one-day practice game at BKSP on January 18.

The first ODI of the three-match series will be played on January 20 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. The second ODI is on January 22 at the same venue.
The third and final ODI of the series will be held on January 25 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

Before the two-match Test series, the tourists will play a four-day warm-up match which is at the MA Aziz Stadium in Chattogram on January 28-31.
The first Test of the series will be held at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram on February 3-7. The second and the final Test is on February 11-15 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.BSS
