Jalal Yanus: Players' Safety Comes As the First Priority

The BCB communicates with the PCB to ensure the safety of the players. 

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is planning to hold talks with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) regarding the issue on coronavirus before finalising the schedule of their tour. 

The meeting is closely related to the two suspected coronavirus cases in Karachi. In addition to that, all of the educational institutions in Sindh are closed until March 13.

‘For us, players' safety comes as the first priority and we are not going to compromise with it at any cost’, Jalal Yunus stated, BCB’s media committee chairman. 

‘We will talk with PCB in this regard and if we see that there is any threat then certainly we will not send our team to Pakistan. But at the moment it is too early to make a decision in this regard as we still have time on our hands’, he added. 

On the other hand, Sindh chief minister Syed Murad Ali Shah cleared that there is nothing to worry about because the cases diagnosed are in quarantine. ‘The measures we are taking, such as the closing of educational institutions, tracking passengers and coordinating with their families, are purely for the safety of our people’, he said. 

As of now, Pakistan has five cases of coronavirus including the cases in Karachi. The remaining ODIs is originally scheduled to be played in April at the National Stadium in Karachi. To learn more about ODIs, check out Betwala’s page for more information.
