Bangladesh cricket team are planned to leave early for Oman to play few warm matches before the beginning of the T20 World Cup 2021, which is set to begin on October 17 in Oman and UAE, respectively.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Cricket Operations Manager Akram Khan said in an interview with Cricfrenzy that the Tigers might play few warm-up matches over there.

"It's not confirmed yet but most likely we will go there and play three warm-up matches. We will go there (Oman) on the 3rd, which means we will reach there on the 4th,” said Akram.

“We will go there and play a practice match. We are more likely to play warm-up matches with Sri Lanka, Ireland and Oman ‘A’. We are discussing it,” he added.

The Bangladesh team are scheduled to reach Oman on October 4, after that, they will enter the bio-bubble and prepare for the warm-up matches.

Bangladesh have to play the qualifiers before they get the ticket to the main event. The Tigers will have to either win the group or at least manage to be runners-up in order to make it through the first round.

Bangladesh will start their T20 World Cup Qualifiers campaign against Scotland. The match will be played at the Oman Cricket Academy ground in Muscat on October 17. The Tigers will face Oman and Papua New Guinea on October 19 and 21 respectively.
