The ongoing residential camp at the BKSP involving the under-19 cricketers has been postponed for three days as two cricketers and a supporting staff showed symptoms of Covid-19. They have been kept in isolation.
The camp will remain stopped from Wednesday to Friday. But it is not yet certain when the camp will restart. It is assumed that the camp will resume on Saturday or Sunday. Before that, the players, coaching staff and supporting staff will have to undergo Covid-19 screening.
Abu Imam Mohammad Kaiser, the game development manager of the BCB, told The Business Standard (TBS), "Practice sessions were not held on Wednesday and Thursday. There won't be any on Friday too. Two cricketers and supporting staff have shown symptoms. That's why the camp has been postponed for the time being to ensure safety. It will resume after all of them get them tested."
"Those who showed symptoms have been kept in isolation. Their roommates have also been instructed to do so. We are having a look at all of them, to be extra careful. The camp might restart on Saturday or Sunday. We will take a couple of days more if needed," added Kaiser.
The camp started on October 1 ahead of the U-19 Asia Cup which was supposed to be held on November. With the tournament being called off, the four-week camp will be cut short to three weeks.
