The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has begun investigations into a biosecure bubble breach that took place throughout a practice session of Mohammedan Sporting Club in the Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier Division T20. The matter has gained (BCB) and Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis’ (CCDM) attention. According to the board, the BCB and CCDM have taken the matter very seriously and an investigation has been initiated. “We are disappointed to note this incident. Both the CCDM and the BCB has taken this very seriously. The health and safety of our teams, players and officials are most important to us,” said CCDM Chairman Kazi Inam Ahmed in an official remark.
“We have invested a remarkable amount of finances and efforts to verify the BSE protocols are in place including the most efficient conceivable accommodation and logistics,” he said.
“This incident is being looked into and essential actions and further precautionary measures will be take,” he added.
According to a outline in ESPNcricinfo, the incident took place when skipper Shakib Al Hasan used to be practicing at the Shere Bangla National Stadium and an outsider entered the premises.
Final week, BCB President Nazmul Hassan said he doesn’t see “any opportunity” of former skipper Shakib playing in the rescheduled Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
The BCB chief cited Bangladesh’s engaged schedule and T20 World Cup which is slated to take place in India in October as the reasons at the back of KKR all-rounder Shakib not getting a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) from the board for IPL.
