All sports activities have been stopped in Bangladesh owing to the Covid-19 outbreak

Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan has informed that they are uncertain over any return date with regards to the resumption of cricket in the country, as well as the away tours and major International Cricket Council events due to the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic.

“There is no specific discussion over when we can restart playing. I can’t say any specific date like, we will return in July or August. So there has been no discussions about it. Even the World T20I is being planned for postponing. So it’s really difficult to say about the bilateral series,” said Nazmul to the media.

“Actually we don’t know when ICC events will take place. We can reschedule after that. So a big problem is lying ahead of us. But it is the same situation for all.  We will try to hold most of the scheduled games. Let’s see what happens,” he added.

According to reports, Sri Lanka Cricket is ready to host Bangladesh for three Test matches, slated for July-August this year.

The BCB boss though said even if SLC is prepared to host, there are a lot of other factors to be taken into consideration.

“Whether Sri Lanka can host or not, that’s not the only factor. There are other factors like if we can or should we send our players to the tour or not, where they will stay or how they will manage, among other things. Maybe one place is safe now, but it can be affected after a month’s time,” said the BCB chief.

“It’s difficult to predict the situation. We will analyze the situation and also observe what other countries or ICC, Asian Cricket Council are doing. Nobody has declared a specific date of resuming play yet. So we are not sure as well,” he concluded.  

All sports activities have been stopped in Bangladesh owing to the Covid-19 outbreak.

With the latest figures, Bangladesh’s Covid-19 death toll has risen to 386 and the total confirmed cases as of Wednesday had climbed to 26,738.
