International cricket is all set to resume on July 8 with the first of three Tests between England and West Indies. There have been talks regarding the resumption of competitive cricket in other countries as well.
But the Covid-19 situation is currently direr in Bangladesh compared to other countries. So there is hardly any chance to restart cricket but the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) doesn't lack in preparations. The board is even thinking of allowing the resumption of practice.
Earlier, BCB permitted the players to practice but soon changed the decision keeping the risk factors in mind.
Akram Khan, chairman of cricket operations of BCB, stated that the cricketers might be allowed to start practising, ahead of this year's Asia Cup. But the former captain informed them that they would wait for another two weeks.
A national team player, citing anonymity, told The Business Standard, "We all want cricket to resume. But the safety of life is the first priority now."
The cricketer also mentioned that there is no need to rush as all the upcoming bilateral series have been called off.
