Bangladesh group need to isolate for multi week in Sri Lanka, says BCB
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury on Saturday said that the Bangladesh group will be isolated for seven days on coming to Sri Lanka for the three-coordinate Test arrangement.
"In our last correspondence with them, SLC revealed to us that we must be in isolation for the initial seven days after the appearance, after which the players can proceed with the preparation plan. We accept that in the event that it stays seven days isolate, we can continue as per our arrangements. [But] I figure we should hang tight for criticism from SLC before offering any further remark," ESPNcricinfo cited Chowdhury as saying.
Be that as it may, the unfamiliar instructing staff which is planned to join the group in Colombo is anticipating the conventions from Sri Lankan Health Ministry.
"A portion of our unfamiliar mentors are wanting to join the group legitimately in Colombo, so we need to comprehend what the convention is for them, and for the individuals who will go with the group. SLC will educate us about the official request from the important service. We addressed them yesterday. We hope to get with them in the following a few days," Chowdhury said.
"SLC has educated us that they are in contact with their wellbeing service and talked about explicit isolate prerequisites. SLC is attempting to lessen it however much as could reasonably be expected, yet it is a worldwide pandemic," he included.
With the BCB sending across two groups - the Test side and the High-Performance group - it could mean up to 60 people venturing out to Sri Lanka together in the not so distant future. The High-Performance side was likewise expected to visit Sri Lanka recently, separate from the public group.
The BCB plans to utilize the High-Performance group to enable the Test to side's arrangements in Sri Lanka, aside from plans to hold a short instructional course in Dhaka before the groups leave.
"We will continue planning for the visit. We are chipping away at our movement, booking and preparing plan for Dhaka. We need our group to be completely arranged, so we are getting ready in like manner," Chowdhury said.
Bangladesh's visit through Sri Lanka, which was booked for July-August, was deferred in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bangladesh is presently expected to go to Sri Lanka on September 27 and the principal Test of the arrangement will begin from October 24.
