BCB gives good news, cricketers can start practice individually

Due to the coronavirus, not only the game but also the practice of the cricketers was stopped. Long-time home-locked cricketers were desperate to get back on the field. Moreover, as they have been away from practice for a long time, there is a fear of getting injured suddenly back on the field.

Considering these aspects, several cricketers sought permission from the board to practice. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has given permission to the cricketers after some time. However, some conditions are being tied. Needless to say, cricketers have to abide by those conditions to ensure their own safety.

Every cricketer needs to have an associate to practice on an individual level. Divisional areas will be given priority for cricketers to use the field for practice. Cricketers have to practice using different rules to stay germ free.

In this regard, the chief selector of the national team Minhajul Abedin Nannu said to Bdcrictime,

“Since no official announcement has been made yet about the start of the team practice, the players can practice anytime, even from today. They can keep an associate with them. In this case, they have to practice following the hygiene rules. Not only in Dhaka, all international stadiums will be open for players to practice.”

Cricket has been closed worldwide since mid-March due to the coronavirus. Many series have been postponed. However, most of the boards are trying to return to the cricket field with caution. England and West Indies will play a bilateral series next month. Recently, the Asian team Sri Lanka also started practicing.

Bangladesh is scheduled to play three Tests in Sri Lanka in July. Players also need to be prepared if the series is to be played on time. The fate of the Sri Lanka series is still in doubt but the cricketers have been finally allowed to practice on the field. Earlier, several cricketers, including Mushfiqur Rahim, had sought permission to practice but the BCB had rejected their request considering the risk.
