Bangladesh cricket team, along with the touring West Indies, are all set to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, reports UNB.

In the first ODI of three-match between Bangladesh and West Indies, both the teams will perform a special act for the cause.

Nizamuddin Chowdhury, chief executive officer of BCB, confirmed the development but declined to disclose what the special acts will be.

“You have seen the West Indies team. They played a few matches during the Covid-19 outbreak and they showed some special activities to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We also planned to do something for this. You’ll come to know before the match what we’ve planned,” he told the media.

Three women started the Black Lives Matter movement in the US in 2013 after the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who shot dead unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin. Protests erupted again last year after the killing of George Floyd, who died in May after a police officer knelt on his neck during his arrest in Minneapolis.

During West Indies’ England tour in June-July last year, they kneeled down to show solidarity with the movement. Hosts England also joined the cause.

Bangladesh will take on the West Indies in three ODIs with the first match taking place on January 20 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium while the second match will also be played at the same venue on January 22.

The third and final ODI of the series will be played in Chattogram on January 25. After this series, both the teams will lock horns in a two-match Test series.
