Ten Bangladesh players start individual training
July 19 2020

"We got a chance to practice on the field today after a long four months," Mohammad Mithun
After a four-month gap, ten Bangladesh cricketers began individual training at four different venues in the country on Sunday. There has been no cricketing activity since mid-March in Bangladesh following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. While some of the other nations have been slowly getting their cricket back on track, Bangladesh haven't made much progress as the BCB always wanted to take a decision in this regard after watching the resumption plan of other countries.

Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shafiul Islam, Imrul Kayes, Khaled Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed, Mahadi Hasan, Nurul Hasan, Mehedy Hasan and Nayeem Hasan were among the cricketers who started training and will be continuing their practice till July 26. Mehedy Hasan Miraj, who was among the 35 cricketers to enlist their names for training, joined at the last minute.

Only one player was allowed to do practice at a time. So when Mushfiqur was batting in the nets, Mithun did his running and vice-versa. BCB's dedicated COVID-19 management team was seen busy keeping track and observing players' safety issues throughout the session and are expected to do the same for the rest of the week. The individual training period may be extended after Eid if there is no domestic cricket or BCB decide to call a camp for group training.

"We got a chance to practice on the field today after a long four months. So batting, running everything seems a little difficult because so far we have done everything indoors," said Mohammad Mithun after the session.

In Dhaka, Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shafiul Islam trained in the opening day while Khaled Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed had their training in Sylhet. Off-spinner Mehedy Hasan, along with Mahadi Hasan, Nurul Hasan completed their training in Khulna whereas Nayeem Hasan could not complete his training in Chattogram due to heavy rainfall.

BCB strength and conditioning coach Tusar Kanti Howlader, who was in charge of the Dhaka zone practice, told Cricbuzz that though the cricketers did not do badly, it will take time for them to adapt.

"Naturally it was difficult for them to adapt as they are doing outdoor sessions after a long gap. I have never seen Mushfiqur or Mithun getting tired but that was the case today," said Tusar. "This will take some time but hoping that day by day we will get everything back as before."

Apart from Dhaka, elsewhere in the country, cricketers could do only running and gymming, while those who trained in the capital had the luxury of some batting practice in the indoor nets. The opportunity was grabbed by both Mushfiqur and Mithun on the opening day.

The four stadiums which will be opened for the players to have training from Sunday are Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in Dhaka, Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) in Chittagong, Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium (SANS) in Khulna and Sylhet Divisional Stadium (SDS) in Sylhet.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal is unlikely to be available for individual training as he is all set to visit England to seek treatment for intestinal pain. Cricbuzz understands that Tamim has had several pathological tests along with CT scans done but unfortunately the physicians are yet to find out the reason behind the pain.

BCB look to finalise Sri Lanka tour: Nizamuddin Chowdhury

July 21 2020

It appears that more than hosting international series, Bangladesh are keen to reschedule away tours, as the COVID-19 situation at home hasn't improved.

With the Asia Cup and ICC Men's T20 WC postponed, Bangladesh Cricket Board is looking to reschedule a slew of international series that have been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

Due to the pandemic, Bangladesh cancelled their tour of Pakistan in March. As the condition around the world worsened, the board then postponed their white-ball tour of Ireland in May, followed by the postponement of the Sri Lanka tour. Bangladesh's two-match Test series against Australia and New Zealand respectively were also postponed.

It appears that more than hosting international series, Bangladesh are keen to reschedule away tours, as the situation at home in relation to the pandemic hasn't exactly improved. Cricbuzz understands that BCB has already started to negotiate with Sri Lanka Cricket to reschedule the tour. "Now the challenge is how to get back to cricket and how to quickly reschedule our international commitments which have been postponed,'' Nizamuddin Chowdhury, BCB chief executive, said on Tuesday (July 21).

''Since the situation in our country is not favourable, we are seeing whether we can reschedule the series that has been postponed outside our country. We are seeing whether we can finalise Bangladesh's tour to Sri Lanka as soon as possible and if that can be finalised, then maybe we have a chance to play cricket at this time. And if the weather in Ireland suits all things considered, then we might go to Ireland too. This is something we can work out,'' he added.

BCB is also planning to restart their domestic season. As per sources, the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis is looking to resume the Dhaka Premier Leaguefrom September 15 after it was postponed following just one round of the competition. ''We are eyeing to bring domestic cricket back as soon as possible and hopefully, the Dhaka Premier League and then BPL if possible,'' Nizamuddin noted.

The chief executive also insisted that they aren't struggling financially due to the Asia Cup and T20 WC getting postponed. ''ICC member distribution is not based on the tournament. The ICC member distribution is done on an annual basis. That way we will get the right fee, maybe we will have less for the time being as the tournament will not be happening now. Later, when the tournament will take place, it will be adjusted. This is something how it works as far as ICC and ACC are concerned.

''The two series that we have postponed are Australia and New Zealand and these two series are not our financially profitable series as both were Test series. Excluding expenses, there is not much profit left and so we have not lost much financially from there as well."

under 19 -Kazi Islam suspended for 2 years

Kazi Islam given a two-year suspension for doping violation

July 26 2020

Kazi Islam has been given a two-year suspension

Bangladesh's first-class cricketer Kazi Islam, who featured in the previous Under-19 World Cup, has been given a two-year suspension due to the doping offence committed by the player. In November 2018, Islam had tested positive for Methamphetamine(d-) during an in-competition test held in Cox Bazaar.

The substance is included in ICC's prohibited list of 2018. Consequently, in February 2019, the left-arm pacer had admitted guilt and also accepted the provisional suspension that was meted out as per BCB's Anti-Doping Code.

In their latest press release, the BCB stressed on their policy of zero tolerance regarding doping violations. However, given that this was Islam's first offence and considering Articles 10.10.1, 10.10.2 and 10.10.3 of the Anti-Doping code, it was decided that 8th February 2019 (the day Islam was provisionally suspended) be considered as the starting date of the suspension.

As a result, he would be eligible to resume cricketing activities after 7th February 2021. It was during the National Cricket League that Islam was tested positive while representing the Dhaka Metro. Subsequently, he was removed from the BPL draft and all other programmes that were under the BCB's reach.

Bangladesh opener Saif Hassan tests positive for COVID-19

September 08 2020
The 21-year-old Saif Hassan has been asked to isolate.

Bangladesh opener Saif Hassan and Strength and Conditioning coach Nick Lee have tested positive for COVID-19, the Bangladesh Cricket Board announced on Tuesday (September 8). The board's medical team had collected samples from the 24-member (17 players and 7 staff) group on Monday as the squad prepares to leave to Sri Lanka on September 27.

Incidentally, Lee had earlier reported positive on August 14 in Dubai but returned a negative result on August 23 after 10 days in isolation. He also completed a 14-day self-quarantine on arrival in Dhaka prior to yesterday's test.

"Our consultant for COVID-19 is reviewing Lee's case to determine whether it is a new or previous infection before advising on the management plan," BCB's Sports Physician Dr Debashis Chowdhury said.

According to chief selector Minhajul Abedin, 37 cricketers, including members of the Test and High Performance squad, scheduled to tour Sri Lanka will have to go through Coronavirus test. BCB had earlier halted individual training as part of a precautionary measure. Players and staff will resume training on September 9 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

BCB officials said that doors were not closed for Saif or any other who may tested positive in the coming days. "We will keep corona positive players under our intensive observation. We will test them again after a certain period. Their future will depend on the next test," said the official.

BCB is planning a week-long residential camp ahead of the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka. The residential camp is set to begin on September 21 while the BCB will conduct COVID-19 Tests in four phases with the other three tests scheduled on September 18, 21 and 24, with the final test scheduled 72 hours before they take the flight to Sri Lanka.
