Bangladesh cricketers to resume training from August 8
A few numbers of Bangladeshi cricketers returned to the field before eid vacation and started individual practice in different venues across the country. After vacation, now they are expected to continue the training again from 8th August, confirmed the chief BCB physician.
“It is going to be individual practice sessions (August 8) like we had last month. But we are expecting more cricketers. The setup will be the same like it was in the first phase but with an increase in the number of cricketers, we will have to increase our support staff and also follow the measures more strictly,” BCB’s chief physician Debashish Chowdhury was quoted as saying by The Daily Star.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is planning to send its national team as well as the High Performance (HP) squad to Sri Lanka in October. Ahead of the tour, it would require more work at the backend with a completely diverse setup and logistical measures when it comes to practicing as a unit.
“We will have to come up with a totally different plan and setup if we look to start team practice sessions. We will have to create a bio-bubble, take the squad into isolation keeping them in a hotel with other logistic support. That will be a different level of operation to look into. Doing that right away with the likely tour of Sri Lanka in October will mean the cricketers will have to be kept away from home for almost three months. That will not be wise as far as the mental health is concerned,” the BCB physician added.
