Bangladesh are set to tour Sri Lanka at the end of next month as the Tigers might finally return to cricket after a break of more than five months. The fixture of the tour will be announced once the matches of the series are confirmed. Currently, three Test matches are a guarantee but whether it will be three ODIs or T20Is to accompany the Tests looks like the decision to be made. Once that decision is made, BCB will announce the primary squad for the training camp.
Players will be kept in isolation before the camp starts and then will be tested for Covid-19, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdhury informed on Monday.
"We will keep the players in isolation and then test them after we make our final decision about the camp. Then we will take the preparations of holding a resident camp for the players," the BCB CEO said.
He added, "The players of and around the national team have been brought under observation through a mobile application named Covid-19 Well-being. Our medical department has overseen their health through this app."
The camp is likely to start at the end of this month if the series happens on time.
"We can arrange the camp after the schedule for the Sri Lanka series is fixed. If we tour Sri Lanka at the end of the next month, we will arrange a conditioning camp before that," Chowdhury said.
BCB are in constant talks about the tour with Sri Lanka Cricket. The BCB CEO informed that it was taking time to fixate on which two formats will be played.
"We are continuously communicating with Sri Lanka. Primary discussions were that a three-Test series would take place. We have received a proposal of playing three T20Is and we will let them know after making the decision ourselves. We have not yet finalised the fixture. We will finalise it after we fixate on which formats we will be playing," Nizam concluded.
