The players is set to resume the individual training session under special arrangement made by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) from August 8 as some more cricketers including Test format captain Mominul Haque will join the session to shed off the rust.
To accommodate such a high number of cricketers will be challenging but the BCB is prepared to run all the things smoothly, said Cricket Operations Chairman Akram Khan, according to BSS reports.
“The individual training will continue like the first phase and the safety measure will be same,” Akram told.
Some more players showed their interest to join the individual training session. This will be challenging to accommodate such a high number of cricketers but the BCB is ready. We’ll devise a plan to how they all could train individually and smoothly.
He said that there is nothing to be worried for safe environment because you know we have already showed zero tolerance about players’ safety.
With the cricketers gearing for a return to international cricket, the BCB has also planned for group practice session, which Mushfiqur Rahim said won’t be problematic as the environment of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium is safe and sound.
“We’ll think about it. We have to start group practice at some point but we won’t take any risk in this regard. When we’ll mull the environment is safe for group practice, we’ll go for it,” Akram added.
The former skipper of Bangladesh said the fringe players also could avail the opportunity of individual training like Mushfiqur Rahim and others.
“Those who are willing to train individually could apply to us. The BCB will definitely arrange the facilities for them to train,” he remarked.
Earlier, in the first phase a total of 14 players took part in the programme which was held in accordance with the standard health protocol in the aspect of COVID-19 pandemic.
