News Americas, FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, Fri. Aug. 3, 2018: The West Indies cricket team is set to play Bangladesh this weekend under the “stars” at the Central Broward Regional Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida.

The two sides will face off in the second and third T-20 match up on Saturday and Sunday August 4 and 5, respectively, at 8 p.m. nightly.

The matches are sure to attract a large Caribbean Diaspora showing given the cricket-loving West Indies community in South Florida.
