“We thank Ban Tech Limited, the new sports management. They are beginning their journey through this series. Hopefully they will be with us in future. We have planned to start with 26 cameras. DRS and: spider cam will be there. Since a drone is required for spider cam, we have applied for approval,” Jalal Yunus, BCB media committee chairman, said.

BCB’s verdict on crowd has not changed, meaning the series will be played behind closed doors in Dhaka and Chattogram.

“For now, no crowd will be allowed,” Jalal said as he compared the situation with fans attending football matches in Bangladesh, “Football is a very short-term sport (90 minutes). There’s less time spent in football while in cricket you need more than eight hours in one-day games and four hours in T20s. Longer version has four days. A lot of things cannot be compared with football. We have to be really careful.”

The first ODI at Mirpur will start at 11:30 am on Wednesday.
