After the completion of the Test series, Bangladesh will play a 3-match T20I series against the West Indies. Mahmudullah Riyad will lead the Bangladesh team, while West Indian selectors have yet to announce their squad for the series.

The Twenty20 team of Bangladesh is not as competitive as other ICC full member sides. Bangladesh don't have enough bowlers who are proficient in this specific format or enough power hitters. On the other hand, the current West Indian squad is not as strong as they were a few years ago. Furthermore, the 2021 T20 World Cup was a complete disaster for both countries. Because of this, both teams will participate in the WI vs BAN T20I Series 2022 as a means of getting prepared for the forthcoming Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.
