The Bangladesh Cricket Board has denied the resumption training of their players at the Sher-e Bangla National Stadium.
Some Bangladeshi players like Mushfiqur Rahim have approached the BCB to start their individual training again. However, the Bangladesh Cricket Board denied them of permission as they are yet to finish disinfecting the Sher-e Bangla National Stadium.
As per BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury, ‘Mushfiq communicated with us, he wanted to begin personal training. But we told him that this is not yet a safe time to do so, he should train at home. Training is important, but players' safety is more important to us’.
‘A few other players wanted to know if they could do individual training. But our message was the same for all. We are working on disinfecting our facilities. But the job is yet to be completed’, he added.
Bangladesh has already lifted their national lockdown last May 31 and it led the BCB to resume some of its activities on a limited scale. To date, the board is still considering the overall situation of the country as they can’t just rush into everything.
The board has also clarified that once everything is cleared and completed when it comes to disinfection and other stuff, then they will be ready to start cricket training again. However, they still can’t give an exact date about the training resumptions as there remains a lot of stuff to be considered.
The BCB is the governing body of cricket in Bangladesh which oversees all cricket happenings which concern their national team as well their very own Bangladesh Premier League. To know more about this league as well as its playing teams, head over to Betwala.
