Akram Khan, chairman of the BCB’s cricket operations committee, said: “We are thinking of testing the players for Covid-19. The department is thinking about how to perform this test. We know how terrible this virus is. So I don’t want to take any risk on the health of the players.”

Although the cricketers have spent time at home and practiced following the board’s guidelines during the lockdown, they are still thinking of having the board tested so as not to take any risks.

BCB chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury said, “it was important to bring the players under the test in the interest of safety. Then they will feel safe themselves.”

The work of disinfection of Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium has already started in full swing. In the first phase, BCB offices are being disinfected. The stadium, indoor, academy ground, gymnasium, players’ laboratory and other infrastructures will be gradually disinfected.
