Cricketers to restart individual training from August 8


The players are set to resume the individual training session under special arrangement made by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) from August 8 as some more cricketers including Test format captain Mominul Haque will join the session to shed off the rust, reports BSS.
To accommodate such a high number of cricketers will be challenging but the BCB is prepared to run all the things smoothly, said Cricket Operations Chairman Akram Khan.
“The individual training will continue like the first phase and the safety measure will be same,” Akram told the BSS.
“Some more players showed their interest to join the individual training session. This will be challenging to accommodate such a high number of cricketers but the BCB is ready. We’ll devise a plan to how they all could train individually and smoothly,” he added.
“There is nothing to be worried for safe environment because you know we have already showed zero tolerance about players’ safety.”
With the cricketers gearing for a return to international cricket, the BCB has also planned for group practice session, which Mushfiqur Rahim said won’t be problematic as the environment of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium is safe and sound.
“We’ll think about it. We have to start group practice at some point but we won’t take any risk in this regard. When we’ll mull the environment is safe for group practice, we’ll go for it,” Akram added.
