BCB yet to scrap Sri Lanka tour

SPORTS REPORTER, DHAKA

Naimur Rahman Durjoy, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director and its High Performance (HP) Committee chairman said that they will tour to Sri Lanka when they think they are safe and secured in the islands nation.

The security situation in Sri Lanka is not favourable for the games after the terror suicide bomb attack that killed 300 people including foreign nationals and more than 500 injured. Then the communal trouble pushed the security situation further troublesome.

Bangladesh High Performance are scheduled to travel to Sri Lanka in August to play a host of games on different formats of games against its Sri Lankan counterparts. Before them, Bangladesh national cricket team are also slated to tour to the country in July just after the conclusion of the forthcoming ICC Cricket World Cup, England and Wales-2019.

“It depends on time. Sri Lanka has a sensitive matter. Hence, there is a matter of observation for us. We’ll check the security situation through our stakeholders before touring the country,” said Naimur Rahman Durjoy.

“When we think we are safe and secured in Sri Lanka, we will then make our tour in the islands national,” Durjoy told media after inaugurating the exclusive training programme of the BCB-High Performance (HP) for the new season at the national academy of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.

“We’re yet to scrap the tour. Still the tour in Sri Lanka is in our schedule,” he added.

The 16-week-long training programme of the BCB-High Performance (HP) core squad started at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur. Head coach Simon Helmot, meanwhile, arrived in Dhaka from Australia to join the opening day training session.  

“We’ve started HP camp from today where practice will be held on fitness and skill development. Those who have problems will also work with them to correct their errors,” the former captain said.

“There is Emerging Tournament ahead. The tournament will be for Under-23 players. We will give our entire focus on their correction. Out of it, we’ll play practice match and go tour on overseas,” he also said.

“We’ve tour to Sri Lanka. We’re yet to decide whether we make our tour there or not,” he added.
