The Bangladesh national cricket team reached Christchurch, New Zealand on Wednesday afternoon to play three ODIs and three T20Is against New Zealand later next month. They stayed in isolation upon reaching there and pacer Taskin Ahmed has hailed this as a 'whole new experience' for the team.
The team stayed 48 hours in isolation after reaching Christchurch. Each player remained in their own room and wasn't allowed to get out and meet others, until Friday as their first corona test came negative.
The players and support staff met each other after two long days and walked keeping a 2-meter distance from each other today. Taskin mentioned this is a whole new experience for the team and they want this to finish as soon as possible.
"We never spent 48 hours like this before. We got a chance to see everyone after our first corona test came negative and walked keeping a 2-meter distance among each other today," Taskin said via a video message.
"It still felt good. It felt like we have been caged for the past two days."
"Overall this has been a different experience, but we want this to end as soon as possible," Taskin added.
The players are mainly spending their time by talking to their families and watching movies. They are also exercising in their own rooms following the programs BCB set for them.
The series will begin with ODIs on March 20 at Dunedin.
