Bangladesh Cricket Board [BCB] Game Development Committee chairman Khaled Mahmud said that they are looking to hold a 60 day camp in England in next year June-July session.

BCB Game Development Committee chairman Khaled Mahmud and BCB age-group selectors sat down to discuss their future plans regarding the development program and resumption plans of the future Under-19 players and those who have already triumph the Under-19 World Cup.

Mahmud informed that they had plans for Akbar and co. but due to the COVID-19 situation, every plan got shattered. For this reason, they have to reschedule their plans and pushed them to next year as the current year is almost at the end.

He also said that they had a plan to have Akbars in a 60 days training camp under a county team in England of which they had done almost everything from communicating with England to structuring the budget, but the unfortunate turned of events pushed the camp to next year.

"We want to do something good with them [U-19 WC champions]. Had a good plan. We already talked in England about whether we could camp there for a long time. Now at this point we are missing this year. Now almost half of July and in September-October that condition will no longer be available," said Mahmud.

"We are already planning to do a 60-day camp there next June-July session, to camp under a county. Basically the thing is there will be camps but we will play a few matches there also we want to do our training session there," he added.

Mahmud also added that in that camp they might have some specialist coaches for the U-19 World Cup winning squad and he also thinks that to upgrade them from what they are now that environment is needed. Because in off-season Bangladesh don't have much room for training but if they had that training in England they will be benefited.

"We may invite some specialist coaches to the camp. There are big coaches who can help. So I think in such conditions, if the boys train in the environment, they will be upgraded. Because we can't do any good training in Bangladesh except indoor in our off-season," he said.

"So if we can create an environment for them to do proper training and play matches at that time, we were actually thinking about that, we went a long way with that, we also created a budget.

"But we don't seem to be able to do that this year. However, we will work on that next year, which we are already planning," Mahmud concluded.
