Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim applied for private practice at the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) academy but was rejected by the board for fear of coronavirus infection.
In a few recent interviews, Mushfiqur said he was looking forward to returning to cricket. He added that it is difficult for him to stay away from cricket for a long time. The right-handed batsman is only working with fitness during the coronavirus epidemic.
BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury told the media, “We have had discussions with Mushfiqur. He wanted to start personal practice. But it will obviously include net-bowlers and curators, which will create a risk for everyone. When everything is ready, he will be able to start practicing. ‘
‘We are not in a position to start practicing now. We will have to wait longer. However, We have already started to prepare for the practice. The board will decide when the national team will be able to start training, ‘he added.
All cricket activities in Bangladesh have been suspended since March 1 due to the coronavirus epidemic. For the same reason, tours to Pakistan, Ireland and England for ODIs and Tests have also been postponed indefinitely.
