Bangladesh Test opener Mahmudul Hasan Joy will travel to West Indies with Bangladesh ‘A’ team next month, a Bangladesh Cricket Board official informed on Tuesday.

“We’ve decided to send Joy to West Indies with the A team so that he can get some matches to get back his form,” Chief Selector Minhajul Abedin told The Daily Sun.

“We’re hoping to announce the squads for the series soon,” he added.

The 21-year-old batsman could make only 65 runs during Bangladesh’s recent two-match Test series against West Indies.

Joy’s last making a fifty in a Test innings was against Sri Lanka six innings back when he scored 58 runs in Chattogram during the opening drawn Test in May.

The series between Bangladesh A and West Indies A will be played at Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in Saint Lucia and it will feature two four-day first-class matches and three 50-over matches, scheduled from August 4 to 20.
