Bangladesh's conditioning camp to begin after Eid

  • Print



Bangladesh's conditioning camp for Asia Cup 2018 will begin on August 27. The Tigers will be having a break of only three weeks after finishing month-long tour of Windies and United States of America. A busy schedule awaits the players.
Asia Cup will kick off on September 15 in United Arab Emirates. Bangladesh willl take on Sri Lanka in Dubai on the opening day. Afghanistan are in Bangladesh's group too. The tournament will have Super Four round. The final will end on September 28.
That is not the end, Zimbabwe will tour Bangladesh for three ODIs and two Tests in October-November. Just after this series, Windies will come here for a full series (two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is). This means Bangladesh will have a busy schedule from September to December.
Chief selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu has informed that they would consider having Test players in the conditioning camp starting from late August.
"We will try to announce the preliminary squad before Eid," Nannu told Jagonews24.com. "Zimbabwe will land here after the Asia Cup. So, we are thinking of including Test players in the camp which will begin on August 27. It's not confirmed yet. We have to talk to coach (Steve Rhodes) and selector Habibul Bashar about it."
Shakib Al Hasan is highly unlikely to join the practice camp. He will undergo a finger surgery which could leave him out of field for a month. His participation in earlier matches of Asia Cup is uncertain. On the other hand, Nazmul Islam Apu will also be out for three-four weeks with hand injury.
