United States of America (USA) and Bangladesh National Cricket Team were all set to clash with each other in the three-match T20I series ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024. However, the series between the two teams has come under scanner due to the bad weather. 

As per the reports in ESPNCricinfo, it is learned that the temporary infrastructure at the Prairie View Cricket Complex, where the series between the United States of America (USA) and Bangladesh National Cricket Team was scheduled to take place has been damaged due to the massive storm in Houston, Texas. 

The development was confirmed by one of the correspondents of ESPNCricinfo, stating that the majority of the temporary infrastructure recently installed at Prairie View Cricket Complex has been destroyed. Taking to his Twitter account, he stated: 

"The start of the USA v Bangladesh T20I series scheduled for May 21 is currently in doubt after a major storm system ripped through the Houston area on Thursday. The majority of the temporary infrastructure recently installed at Prairie View Cricket Complex has been destroyed." 

The series between the United States of America and Bangladesh National Cricket Team was scheduled to take place from 21st May. The second match of the series is slated to take place on 23rd May followed by the last match to be played on 25th May.

If the series between the two teams happens to take place, it will be an ideal preparation for both teams for the T20 World Cup 2024, which will be played in the United States of America and the Caribbean in the month of June. It'll be a great opportunity for them to get used to the conditions. 

Bangladesh would be entering the series high on confidence as they recently defeated Zimbabwe by 4-1 in the five-match T20I series. After the series against the USA, they will be locking horns with the same opponents in the warm-up game of the tournament on May 28 before playing a second warm-up game against India on June 1. They will open their T20 World Cup campaign against Sri Lana on June 8 in Dallas.
