Bangladesh cricket faced a long hiatus due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic last year. Even though international cricket returned for the Tigers, domestic cricket is yet to resume. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is trying its best to bring domestic cricket back to life as soon as possible.
BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury told the media on Wednesday that they are trying to make a calendar for domestic cricket till 2023.
Nizamuddin said that BCB will keep ICC's FTP in concern while making the domestic calendar and they are planning to begin with the longer version.
"We have an FTP till 2023, we are keeping that in mind. We are making a calendar for domestic cricket till 2023 as well. We are trying to confirm the fixtures of the main tournaments such as DPL, NCL, BPL. We have a plan to resume with NCL and then DPL afterwards," said Nizamuddin.
The BCB CEO also mentioned the probable date of resuming domestic cricket. "We have a series going on right now, we will probably start after that."
Nizamuddin confirmed that the possible date of BPL's next edition has already been confirmed and awaiting governing body's approval.
National team cricketers have already received the first dose of the Corona vaccine before flying to New Zealand. BCB is now trying to vaccinate domestic cricketers as well and Nizamuddin confirmed that the list of players has already been finalised and sent to the National Sports Council.
Apart from that, Nizamuddin talked about the Sri Lanka tour in April. The Sri Lanka board has already sent BCB the final schedule which will soon be announced.
