Bangladesh's ODI captain Mashrafe Mortaza will travel to the West Indies late on Monday, for the ODI series that begins on July 22. Mashrafe didn't fly out with the rest of the ODI specialists earlier this week in order to be by the side of his wife, who had been ill for the last four weeks. However, an improvement in her health - she has returned home from hospital - has resulted in a change of plans.

Bangladesh have a lone warm-up one-day game scheduled on July 19 in Kingston. The first ODI of the three-match series will take place in Providence on July 22, before their tour concludes with a T20I series in the first week of August. Bangladesh have already lost the Test series, where they were swept 2-0.
