“We have already prepared our team. But how we will announce it before the confirmation of the tour,” said Minhajul Abedin Nannu.
“Let’s first get the confirmation of the tour. We will not make any delay to announce the Bangladesh squad for the Test series. After getting its confirmation, we’ll announce it,” Nannu told Cricfrenzy.com.
It is learnt from the BCB sources that the selectors have prepared an extended squad as per the COVID-19 plan for the Test series which will be played in Sri Lanka from October (23).

BCB Chief Selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu said the BCB has started second-phased corona test to accommodate the players, coaching staff and officials before the residential camp.
“We all know we have scheduled a week-long camp in Dhaka before flying to Sri Lanka. We’ll do it in a controlled manner for the safety of the players so that no one is infected by it any longer,” the chief selector said.
