Allen and Colin de Grandhomme, on the other hand, arrived on the 20th of August after playing in England’s “hundred” league. They were placed in quarantine in a Dhaka hotel room.

In the absence of Kane Williamson, Tom Latham will lead New Zealand on their white-ball tours of Pakistan and Bangladesh, which begin in September. On both tours, the opener will serve as the leader in white-ball formats.

Due to their engagement in the IPL, several first-team players, including Williamson, Trent Boult, Kyle Jamieson, and Lockie Ferguson, will be absent for part of the tour.

In September, New Zealand will play Bangladesh in five Twenty20 Internationals, followed by three ODIs and five T20Is in Pakistan.
