Bangladesh Cricket Board will make its own arrangements to vaccinate the players against the Covid-19 in order to start domestic cricket.
The BCB vaccination program is likely to be held by end of February and this decision was taken in a board meeting Wednesday.
BCB suspended all forms of professional cricket in the country in March last year with the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the country and worldwide.
Cricket got back to the field by the end of last year and BCB under strict measures hosted two domestic competitions and its first international series in 10 months with the ongoing home series against the West Indies.
All the events were held with the cricketers and officials kept inside a bio-secure bubble.

BCB has decided not to resume domestic cricket in the country at all levels until vaccination of top 500 cricketers are done.
The board is yet to inform the source of their vaccines but the process is being considered easy given the BCB president Nazmul Hasan is also chief executive of Beximco Pharmaceuticals.
Beximco has signed a deal to procure 30m vaccine doses from India for the Bangladesh government and is also mulling to buy doses to sell in the market.
Bangladesh this week received two million vaccine doses from India and launched an anti-coronavirus drive Wednesday with 27 people, including nurses and doctors, receiving the first available vaccines.
