Terms that were set based on Covid-19 pandemic SLC has made Bangladesh Cricket Board [BCB] think of the otherwise

Sri Lanka sports minister Namal Rajapaksa has asked Sri Lanka Cricket, to reconsider ‘terms’ that has forced Bangladesh men’s national team tour of Sri Lanka later this month into uncertainty. Bangladesh were scheduled to depart Dhaka on September 27 for a three-match Test series that is scheduled to begin on October 24.

However, terms that were set based on Covid-19 pandemic SLC has made Bangladesh Cricket Board [BCB] think of the otherwise. Following a meeting by BCB directors on Monday, BCB said it is not possible to tour Sri Lanka if the terms are not changed.

“As we all know the Covid-19 pandemic is still at large globally, prevention measures are a high priority. However, given the significance of cricket in the region, I have asked SLC to consult the Covid-19 task force and reconsider the BCB’s matter,” Namal twitted.

Earlier on the day, BCB president Nazmul Hasan, addressing the media said, “A lot of terms are new to us. Many countries have seven-day quarantine but the touring teams there are allowed to practice. At some places teams are being allowed to get to the field after three-day quarantine. But the terms given by SLC yesterday [Sunday] says none of our team members will be allowed to go out even from the room for 14-days. Not even to have a food. We feel there is some reason behind this. We feel that may be they are dealing a tough situation with Covid-19 which we don’t know about. They are playing domestic games there but when it came to us they are trying to impose these restrictions.”

Sri Lanka’s sports minister Namal took to his official twitter account addressing the situation following the statement from BCB president Nazmul.
