Cricket in Bangladesh is suspended along with other sports since March this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With no option for a physical interaction, the national team management chose to have regular virtual meetings

Bangladesh men’s national cricket team head coach Russell Domingo, his team management and the national preliminary squad consisting around 35 cricketers attended a virtual meeting on Monday. The meeting was to discuss the current situation of the cricketers both mentally and physically and ensure that the players are following the directive that has been set by Bangladesh Cricket Board [BCB] as they stay at home.

Cricket in Bangladesh is suspended along with other sports since March this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With no option for a physical interaction, the national team management chose to have regular virtual meetings. The meetings are held in groups, divided by batsmen and bowlers, and at times involve the whole of the national squad.

 “This was not the first time Domingo had a virtual meeting with the cricketers. He is guiding the cricketers through the meetings. We are waiting for the situation to improve as everything depends on it. We are eager to return to the field,” said BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan to the media on Monday.

The board, national think-tank and the cricketers are eager for a return to business but are unaware when it may happen. It is understood that there are occasions when discussion over possible start to the training camp is discussed in these meeting but without an ambition that is of a scheduled tournament or a series, the plan doesn’t see the light.

BCB since March has postponed five bilateral series and saw a major tournament in shape of Asia Cup T20 get shelved this year. This year’s Dhaka Premier League also got suspended having completed only the first round of matches.

 “We often discuss about a possible start of the training camp but going to the field without an aim doesn’t make sense. Many of our bilateral series got postponed and then the Asia Cup T20 in September got cancelled. At this point we do not know when the Dhaka League will resume or if ICC World T20 will be held,” said a prominent member of the Bangladesh national team to Dhaka Tribune.

 “So without a series or tournament scheduled we do not have a set of ambition to work on skills in the field. We are working on fitness at home and I believe it is going to be that way because there is no point in risking of going to the field at the moment,” the cricketer added.
