Mahmudullah's side will start their T20 World Cup mission taking on Scotland on October 17

Bangladesh decided to opt out of the practice game in Oman as part of their preparation for the Twenty20 World Cup.

The decision was taken to protect the bio-secured bubble and avoid the six-day quarantine in Dubai. 

People coming from Oman would have to have mandatory six-day quarantine in Dubai as per the decision of the government there.

Bangladesh were in talks with Oman as to whether they can play a practice game against Oman A team. 

But considering the quarantine issue, the talks were stopped at the last minute, a BCB official said.

It means, International Cricket Council-organized two official warm-up games against Sri Lanka and Ireland on October 12 and 14 would be Bangladesh's only practice matches ahead of the T20 World Cup.

But Bangladesh will have a practice camp in Oman's capital Muscat under the bio-secure environment. 

The Tigers will leave the country on October 3.

They will first board a flight for Oman where they will have a practice camp before they move to Dubai for two official practice matches for the T20 World Cup, organized by the ICC.

They will then again travel to Oman for their first round matches where they are drawn with Scotland, co-host Oman and Papua New Guinea.

Mahmudullah's side will start their mission taking on Scotland on October 17.

If they qualify, they will be drawn with India, Pakistan, New Zealand, Afghanistan and another team from qualifying in the first round.
