Two members of the New Zealand T20 squad - Finn Allen and Colin de Grandhomme - will arrive in Dhaka on August 20 to take part in the upcoming five-match T20I series against the hosts, scheduled from September 1.

Both the players are currently taking part in the ongoing Hundred and they will be flying to Bangladesh from England. Allen is representing Birmingham Phoenix while Grandhomme is playing for Southern Brave in the ongoing Hundred.

The other members of the New Zealand team will arrive in Dhaka on August 24 as per the previous schedule.

Meanwhile, an Advance team of New Zealand Cricket will arrive in Dhaka today to have a look at the bio-bubble arrangements of BCB for the upcoming series.

They will later report back to NZC citing their observations. Bangladesh can take confidence as they have successfully hosted several domestic and international series in the new normal environment since the Covid-19 outbreak in the country last year.
