“Only essential officials will be allowed to come [to work]. A roster has been prepared accordingly and it has been done as a part of overall safety and security measures,” informed a BCB official requesting anonymity on Monday

Bangladesh Cricket Board [BCB] has put its employees on ‘work from home’ once again. With the second wave of Covid-19 virus being warned by the authorities across the globe, BCB took the decision to have its employees work from home for a week.

The board will however continue with the training program of the national cricketers under special arrangement. Bangladesh cricketer, coming from a break of almost five months, are now preparing for a long tour of Sri Lanka next month for a three-match Test series starting October 24 .

“Only essential officials will be allowed to come [to work]. A roster has been prepared accordingly and it has been done as a part of overall safety and security measures,” informed a BCB official requesting anonymity on Monday.

“It however doesn’t involve players. They will continue with the training. The week-long work from home policy has been set as of overall health security measures,” the official added.  

BCB have kept cricket in the country suspended since March this year. However with requests from the cricketers and tour of Sri Lanka approaching, the board in July allowed the cricketers to use the facilities of individual practice sessions under special arrangement.  

“We had planned that when we start the small group or team-wise practice after individual training sessions, we will not allow even groundsmen in the stadium. It has been done for the further safety and security of the players ahead of the next series,” BCB’s media committee chairman Jalal Younus said to the media.

 “We have a three-match Test series for which we need to bring players back to the field. But they were four-five months away from cricket completely. They need to hone on their skills and techniques for the series,” he said.

 Bangladesh has recorded 33 more deaths from Covid-19 till Monday afternoon, taking the number of total fatalities to 4,281. The country also logged more than 312,000 cases from the virus with 2,174 fresh people having tested positive between Sunday to Monday afternoon.
