The BCB will provide equipment to the players to practice at home

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is planning to buy the necessary equipment for cricketers who do not have fitness training equipment at home.

Not all cricketers have the necessary equipment to practice fitness at home. Taking this into account, the country’s cricket governing body is planning to buy equipment so that they can continue to practice at home or maintain their fitness.

It is not possible to maintain 100% fitness at home – the board knows that very well. So the board has taken initiative to help the cricketers to maintain at least 80 percent fitness. BCB chief medical officer said. Debashish Chowdhury said, “We are happy if the cricketers can maintain at least 80 percent fitness at home. They don’t even need 100% fitness at the moment. They will automatically become 100% fit when they start outdoor practice. What you need to do for 100% fitness is not possible at home.”

“We are planning to work together to keep the players at home fit,” he said. We are planning to buy some equipment for them. ‘

“We know which players have fitness equipment in their houses and which cricketers do not,” said the BCB’s top medical official. So we plan to provide equipment to those who do not have it so that they can continue the intensive practice.”

Dr. Debashish said the BCB has already formulated a guideline on what to do when the players are allowed to practice at the venue.

The BCB is keen to start cricket activities by July. For this, they have already prepared eight venues in the country. Dr. Debasish also said that a medical team has been set up so that the cricketers can practice on the field without any hindrance.
