Bangladesh players happy on occasion of resuming cricket
After Coronavirus Pandemic halted all the cricketic events , Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) was in dilemma about the resumption of cricket. At last cricketers are returning to the field even though they have not returned for 22 yards. About 9 cricketers will start official practice from tomorrow (Sunday).
Nurul Hasan Sohan, Shafiul Islam and Naeem Hasan were happy to get the opportunity even though the rest did not come to the field to practice due to security concerns.A total of 9 cricketers including Dhaka 4, Khulna 2, Sylhet 2 and 1 in Chittagong have agreed to go to the field and practice. Those returning to practice will also have to go through a lot of safety belts. They will get the opportunity to train alone at the specified time.
“The initiative taken by the BCB has been good for us,” Sohan told bdnews24.com. The BCB, of course, has been trying for a long time to figure out how to get back on the field. So finally we are back on the field. This is good news for our cricketers. “
Commenting on the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s guidelines for returning to the field, Sohan said, “The guidelines are about our running and fitness. For now, these will be worked on. And I think the skill will start with a little more time. ‘
As it was too late to start training due to security concerns, pacer Shafiul said the matter would be of utmost importance. “It simply came to our notice then. For security reasons, we could not return to the field for so long, we could not practice. That is why the practice sessions have been arranged in such a way that we have to practice one by one.”
Although the practice started after a long time, the cricketers are not getting the opportunity to practice as a team now. They have to run or gym alone according to the schedule. Talking to the cricketers, it was learned that since skill training has not started, many people are losing interest. They want to work at home with fitness.
In this context, spinner Naeem Hasan, who is going to practice as the only cricketer in Chittagong, said, “We have been told to practice for now. It took an hour. Since there is no skill training at the moment, only running and fitness, everyone is saying that now they will practice at home instead of going to the field.”
Shafiul is one of four cricketers who have agreed to practice in Mirpur. “It’s a personal matter,” he said. Those who have the opportunity are practicing at home. I thought Jim’s prop equipment would be available on the field. That’s why I made the decision. “
Sohan, who wants to practice in Khulna, hopes that once the skill training is started after Eid, the rest will want to return to the field. “Hopefully, we will be able to start team training in a few days.”
