HEADLINE: West Indies to host Bangladesh for T20Is in Florida 2018-05-13 07:19:22 

West Indies are set to host Bangladesh for three T20 internationals in August, with the second and third games to be held at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida. St Kitts is likely to be the venue for the first game.

A Florida stadium official confirmed to ESPNcricinfo earlier this year that Cricket West Indies (CWI) had reserved the dates to hold a set of matches, initially believed to be against Pakistan as a reciprocal arrangement following West Indies' agreement to play three T20Is in Karachi in April. But Bangladesh are already due to tour the West Indies in July - a tour pushed back from March due to it clashing with the World Cup Qualifier that West Indies took part in - for two Tests and three ODIs.

Is Florida stadium a third world facility? Where is Trump when we need him to pontificate!

No proper lighting and drainage, are you kidding me?

why this fixation with Florida, after regional governments spent all that money building stadiums?

A cricket-hungry lucrative market waiting to be exploited by CWI.

What was Lauderhill attendance the last time Full Members played there, curious.

Untapped market is one thing (especially if compared to what's perceived as a guaranteed market in Jamaica or Antigua or the like). Would it cost the organisers more to host it in the Windies vs Florida? (assuming TV rights are more or less the same)

I think the last full members to play at Lauderhill were WI v India in a T20. The cheap tickets were a few hundred dollars and I think the match sold out smile
