No problem if SBNCS used as quarantine centre: BCB

SPORTS REPORTER, Dhaka
No problem if SBNCS used as quarantine centre: BCB

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has said it is ready to help the government in the fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the country.

It has also said it will have no qualms if the government chooses to use the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) as a quarantine centre for suspected COVID-19 patients.

Athletes and sports bodies around the world have been playing a vital role to help governments in this critical time. Just two days back, 27 Bangladeshi cricketers have donated Tk 30.15 lakh to the government’s coronavirus prevention fund. The cricketers donated half of their wages in the current month.

The BCB will soon sit with the government for a meeting. After that, the board will decide whether it will provide financial help to the government or help in any other way.

Like other sports bodies, the BCB will stand beside the government in this moment of crisis.

BCB Director Jalal Yunus said they have no problem if the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium and the National Cricket Academy are used as a quarantine centre. “We are here if the government needs any logistic support from the board. We'll support the government in any way we could," he added.

Jalal Yunus, who is also chairman of the BCB's Media and Publication Committee, said: “We are ready to offer the stadium as well as the academy, if needed,” Jalal told reporters.

Meanwhile, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Saurav Ganguly recently said that they have no problems if the Indian government wants to use the iconic cricket stadium ‘Eden Gardens’ in Kolkata as a quarantine facility.
