With the day washed off, most of the teams lodging inside bio-bubble at four different high-end hotels in the capital remained in their rooms. Such level of arrangements is seen for the first time for the premier 50-over competition of the country and it is suggested by many akin to the level of Bangladesh Premier League T20
Heavy rain and wet outfields denied the six matches in round two of the ongoing Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier League T20 taking place on Tuesday. Thus, Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis [CCDM] in a decision after discussing with the clubs and other stakeholders decided to reschedule the matches that were outlined till June 5.
According to the new schedule, the second round matches will be held on Wednesday. Matches that were scheduled to place at BKSP on June 1 and 3 will now be played at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. The home of cricket at Mirpur will hold three matches each in next four days starting Wednesday.

“The scheduled matches of the Bangabandhu DPL T20 Cricket League 2019-20 were halted today [Tuesday] due to heavy rain which caused water logging at the two venues of BKSP. In conversation with the clubs and the BCB Management, the CCDM has decided to shift fixtures at BKSP scheduled on June 01, 03 to the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur which will hold three matches a day for the next four days (02-05 June). We take this opportunity to thank the clubs and the cricketers for their cooperation,” said Bangladesh Cricket Board director and CCDM chairman Kazi Inam Ahmed to the media on Tuesday.
With the day washed off, most of the teams lodging inside bio-bubble at four different high-end hotels in the capital remained in their rooms. Such level of arrangements is seen for the first time for the premier 50-over competition of the country and it is suggested by many akin to the level of Bangladesh Premier League T20.
The league was suspended in March last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and following rigorous work by CCDM and other departments of the BCB in order to ensure health safety of the participating players and official, the tournament could be resumed despite the presence of pandemic.
The members of Bangladesh national team have been staying under bio-bubble for a while due to their international responsibilities and considering their mental fatigue the CCDM has allowed their families stay together at the hotel during the league. Wicket-keeper batsman and experienced cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim is among the few players who decided to bring his family and stay together in the hotel inside the bio-secure bubble.
