Tigers head to Florida

It will be a totally new experience for the Bangladesh cricketers when they take part in their maiden international match in the United States of America on Saturday.

The visitors will take on West Indies in the remaining two matches of the three-match T20I series, scheduled for August 4 and 5 at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Florida.

It will also be a marked change in atmosphere from the Caribbean. But Shakib Al Hasan and his troops will have to get used to the change pretty fast if they are to save the three-T20I series after losing the first game by seven wickets in St Kitts on Tuesday.

So far, the stadium in Lauderhill has hosted six T20I games, with the most recent one between India and West Indies in 2016 being abandoned due to rain.

West Indies are still undefeated at the venue and had won all their three games before the washout against India. They also registered the highest total at the ground when they posted 209 for two against New Zealand in a game that they won by 56 runs in 2012.

On a more positive note Bangladesh will surely get some support from the expatriate community living in the United States, many of whom are certain to travel to the southern state to watch their team play for the first time.
