Both Vettori and McMillan were previously expected to travel directly to Sri Lanka from New Zealand and join the Tigers however according to BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury the board has asked both the Kiwi coaches to first arrive in Bangladesh.

“As there are some complications regarding the flights for Colombo so we have asked Vettori and McMillan to first come to Bangladesh and then travel with the team together,” Nizamuddin said on Friday
