West Indies in Bangladesh 2012-13 schedule
The Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna will become the seventh Test venue in the country when it hosts the second Test between Bangladesh and West Indies from November 21. The ground has hosted four ODIs and a single Twenty20 international, the first-ever held in Bangladesh, in 2006.
The break from the Dhaka-Chittagong tradition of the last several years of holding Test matches had come about after the BCB decided to install proper drainage facilities at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong.
Before the twoTests, West Indies will open with a three-day tour game at the BKSP ground in Savar from November 8. They play the first Test in Mirpur from November 13, which will be Bangladesh's first home Test in 2012. The Tests will be followed by five ODIs and a single Twenty20 international.
The visitors will also play a warm-up one-day game in Khulna on November 27 following which the one-day series begins on November 29. The south-western city will host the second ODI before the tour returns to the capital for the remaining games on December 5, 7 and 8. The Twenty20 game will be held on December 10.
West Indies are set to arrive in Dhaka on November 3.
