“USA Set to Host Canada and Bangladesh in Pre-T20 World Cup Showdowns”

The United States of America will host Canada for a five-match T20I series in April, followed by a three-game T20I series against Bangladesh as part of their preparations for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

As co-hosts of the T20 World Cup, USA Cricket is gearing up for the tournament with a total of eight high-stake T20Is scheduled for April and May.

The series against Canada will kick off first, with five T20I matches slated to be held in Houston, Texas, starting from April 7. Following this, Bangladesh will tour in May for an intense three-match T20I series, also to be hosted in Houston, Texas.

The lineup of matches was confirmed after discussions between the host board and Cricket Canada, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), and the ICC.

These tours are aimed at strengthening USA Cricket’s bilateral ties with the respective boards and providing more playing opportunities for its teams in the future.

Venu Pisike, Chairman of USA Cricket, emphasized the importance of these games in building team cohesion and refining strategies ahead of the Men’s T20 World Cup.

“These games will be vital for our team to establish working combinations, build team cohesion, and fine-tune strategies. I’d also like to thank the ICC, Cricket Canada, and the Bangladesh Cricket Board for their full support in scheduling the matches.”

Nizam Uddin Chowdhury, Chief Executive Officer of the Bangladesh Cricket Board, highlighted the historic significance of the tour and its importance as preparation for the T20 World Cup.

“The upcoming tour of the USA by the Bangladesh Team marks a historic occasion in cricket. This T20I series provides a momentous opportunity for the cricketers of both nations to showcase their talent and passion for the sport. For the Bangladesh Team, this tour serves as an ideal platform to adapt to the conditions ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.”

Chowdhury further expressed Bangladesh’s commitment to making the most of this preparatory phase and extended full support to USA Cricket in promoting and developing cricket within its burgeoning market.

The T20 World Cup 2024 will be the largest ever, featuring 20 teams and 55 games, with 16 matches scheduled to be played across three venues in the USA.
