The Bengal cricket team is planning to go abroad in the first half of September to get quality match practice ahead of the Ranji Trophy, with Kenya, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh featuring among the likely destinations.
Disclosing this to PTI at Kolkata on Thursday, Cricket Association of Bengal joint secretary Saradindu Pal said that the tour details would be finalised after the Association's elections on July 28.
"We will take a decision on the final destinations after considering all aspects, including the weather, expenses and the likely opposition," Pal said.
Till last year, Bengal had been playing tournaments like Buchi Babu to give their players match practice before the Ranji Trophy.
"If our plans materialise, then we will skip these season-opening domestic tourneys," he said.
