BCB’s initiative in corona awareness.The Bangladesh team has returned to cricket after adapting to the Corona situation. If all goes well, the Tigers should have been on a tour of Sri Lanka. But the tour has been postponed due to lack of agreement on the quarantine issue. However, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) does not want to keep players out of the game. As part of this, BCB is conducting corona test of more than 100 people including the support staff of the under-19 team and team before starting the skill camp of the national team.
BCB chief physician Debashish Chowdhury said the corona test is starting from Wednesday. The BCB has called up 27 members of the preliminary squad for the Corona Test. Fast bowler Abu Jayed Chowdhury Rahi, who tested positive for corona on September 22, will also be tested again.
Players have been in the biosecurity zone since September 20. That means they has been isolated in a corona free environment. But they returned home before the tour of Lanka was postponed. However, BCB will work with them again.
The skill camp will start again from Thursday. It will continue till October 15. Dr. Debashish said, “Apart from the national team, the cricketers of the under-19 team will also be tested. Both teams have coaching and supporting staff. There are 32 officials of Team Hotel. In all, more than a hundred corona will be tested.
All in all, the BCB is careful to keep cricketers away from Corona.
