BCB planning to start cricket soon
|| CF Correspondent ||
The Bangladesh Cricket Board is hopeful to start cricketing activities from next month keeping the Asia cup and World cup in mind.
The decision to restart cricket will depend on the improvement of the coronavirus situation in the country.
Asia Cup is scheduled to be held in September, T20 World Cup is slated to be held on October. The authorities are yet to postpone those two tournament but chances are high that it also would be postponed.
BCB Cricket operation chairman Akram khan said they will look at the fixture and take preparation from there onwards as all test matches have been postponed
‘’We had prioritized Test but all of the Test matches, which were due to be held in this year, were postponed. So when we’ll start practice, we’ll see which tournament is next and we’ll practice for that particular event,” Akram Khan was quoted in BSS today.
The BCB has made all the preparation to bring back cricket like most other countries as they are focusing more on players health and hoping the coronavirus situation improves before taking any decision.
“Like the other countries, we have completed all the preparations to bring back cricket in the ground but as I said earlier, we don’t want to take any risk with players health issue and safety,” Akram remarked.
“We just can’t take any decision that can be risky for the players. So we are waiting for an improved situation. The BCB will take any decision, considering the situation.” Akram concluded
