Lighter seven-day quarantine for Bangladesh in SL

After the NZ series, the Bangladesh cricketers will have around nine days of break before travelling to SL for the Test matches

Bangladesh national cricket team will have simpler Covid-19 protocols to follow when they tour Sri Lanka in April this year.

Bangladesh Cricket Board CEO NIzamuddin Chowdhury informed that Bangladesh team are set to travel to the island national on April 12 for the two-match Test series that is part of the World Test Championship.

The series was earlier postponed in September last year due to strict Covid-19 guidelines set by Sri Lanka Covid-19 task force.

BCB president Nazmul Hasan while confirming their decision not to tour Sri Lanka had said the length of the quarantine, which the Sri Lankan health authorities insisted to be 14 days, with the players' movement strictly limited to their hotel rooms, was the main reason behind their disagreement.

This time however, Bangladesh will only be in a week-long quarantine, a protocol that Sri Lanka started with England, who toured the island nation earlier in January this year.

The English side were self-isolated for the first three days since their arrival and was later allowed to attend practice sessions.

The two venues for the two-match Test series between tourists Bangladesh Cricket : The Tigers and hosts Sri Lanka are yet to be decided.

“Both the Tests will be played in the same venue where the team will stay in Colombo (for the quarantine period). If everything remains on track Bangladesh team are expected to travel to Sri Lanka on April 12. Initially, we have to quarantine for six-seven days where the team will follow the other health safety protocols accordingly,” said Nizamuddin to the media Sunday.

After playing the two Tests, Bangladesh will then host Sri Lanka for a three-ODI series, part of the pathway to the World Cup Super League.

“After completing the two WTC games we are expected to host Sri Lanka for the three-ODI series. The Sri Lankan team are expected to arrive in Bangladesh on May 20,” said the BCB official.

Bangladesh are currently on tour of New Zealand for three ODIs and as many T20Is. 

The last game of the series will be played on April 1 and the team will return home on April 3. 

The cricketers will have around nine days of break before travelling to Sri Lanka for the Test matches.
