SLC awaits BCB’S response on health guidelines
Sri Lanka Cricket is waiting for the decision from Bangladesh Cricket Board, after sending the national health guidelines of the country ahead of the proposed series.
The much anticipated Test series between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka is facing some setbacks because of the health guidelines in Sri Lanka. It will be Bangladesh’s first International outing after a long break due to the pandemic situation.
A conflict has been arisen between two cricket boards, regarding the quarantine period for Bangladesh team in Sri Lanka. The new issue has raised questions on the series, whether it will go as per plan or not.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Cricket has sent the final health guidelines policy to Bangladesh Cricket Board and the board is waiting for the reply from the later to move forward with the arrangements. Ashley de Silva, the Chief Operating Officer of SLC, conveyed this news to a national newspaper in Sri Lanka.
“We have got the guidelines from the Health Ministry that has been sent to the BCB today (yesterday). They have to study it thoroughly and give us their feedback as to how they will prepare themselves to embark on this tour,” said De Silva.
“We want to make sure that we eliminate the virus threat and support the government in a national cause. We will wait until we receive a feedback from BCB and then pursue the rest of the arrangements,” he added.
