Almost 100 cricketers participated in the mandatory fitness test at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka Sunday as the four teams of the Bangladesh Cricket League put the final touches to their preparation, ahead of the players’ draft Monday.
Majority of the cricketers passed the minimum level – 11 - in the beep test set by the national selectors.
Those who failed will reappear for the test Monday.
Anamul Haque Bijoy, Nadif Chowdhury, Marshal Ayub, Elias Sunny and Yasir Ali Chowdhury were among the established cricketers to have failed the test and will reappear.
Mahidul Islam Ankon and Ruhel Mia both registered 13.2 respectively among the toppers.

However, alike to the National Cricket League, senior cricketers are being treated leniently in the BCL too.
“Most of the cricketers have done well and have crossed level 11, benchmark that has been set by the selectors. With 13.4, Mominul Islam Jr recorded the best score in the test,” informed Bangladesh Cricket Board trainer Iftekharul Islam to the media Sunday.
BCL, the country's lone franchise-based first-class competition, is set to start from Friday.
However, only two teams will be patronized by respective franchises this season after Prime Bank pulled out from the tournament following the previous edition.
Two of the four teams are now being managed by BCB.
