The three-day warm-up match between the West Indies and BCB XI, scheduled to take place from November 8 to 11, was called off due to unplayable conditions at the BKSP.

Incessant rain in the last couple of days made the ground water-logged and it was declared unfit to conduct the tour match.

“We initially thought that we could have played two days of cricket, but when we went there along with the West Indies coach Ottis Gibson, we came to a decision to cancel the tour game,” said Sabbir Khan, BCB's Cricket Operations Manager.

The cancellation of the warm-up game means that Bangladesh will now face the West Indies in the first Test starting on the 13th.
