National team cricketers are staying fit and ready for their upcoming course of events which has been halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be resume as soon as the board finds the right possible time.

Since last March cricketers have been forced to stay at home and do follow their practice routine which has been provided by Bangladesh

Cricket Board and the head coach Russell Domingo, as well as other coaches, are supervising it while staying out of contact under BCB's

Cricket Operations Department arrangements. Separate group sessions have already been held with cricketers who were in the Test side in recent times, players who were in white-ball cricket, batsmen and pace bowlers.

A number of international home and away tours and competitions, as well as domestic events, have been postponed due to the distressing situation. However, the cricketers have remained busy mainly with individual fitness programmes.

Test skipper Mominul Hoque felt that the interactive sessions have been beneficial and elevating especially seeing the present circumstances.

"We all want to get back to the playing field as soon as possible. For a cricketer nothing can be more frustrating than not being able to train or play. That is why these meetings are really important and helps us stay focused and in touch with cricket," Mominul Haque quoted as saying in the media release of BCB.
 
"All the players, from seniors to the newest member, are spontaneously participating in the discussions and sharing ideas with the coaches and fellow cricketers. There has been a lot of emphasis put on mental well-being and preparation."

"Our Test performance has been analysed and we have talked about what we can learn from recent experiences. I believe everyone has a lot of time to themselves now and therefore can think more clearly about their own game and understand what to do and what not to do," he added.

 Afif Hossain, young all-rounder thought that the briefing from coaches and senior players were noteworthy in terms of direction.

“Experienced campaigners like Mushfiqur Rahim spoke about the responsibility of players and what is expected from the us going forward. The video analysis from our matches have been very helpful also," Afifi said.                  

Earlier, BCB has granted permission to lend their gym equipment available for all the players. A pool of 38 players have been made by the National Selectors who are made available for this service and already 19 of them availed this opportunity across the country.
