  • Print


Sports Reporter :
Captain of Bangladesh Cricket (Test) team Mominul Haque will joint the individual training sessions from August 8, while left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman will join the training programme soon. Mominul Haque and Mustafizur Rahman will join the  individual training session, which will be held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in the city's Mirpur and the BCB NCA ground, which is adjacent to the SBNCS.
Chairman of the Cricket Operations Committee of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Akram Khan said, "We are yet to know how many players will join the individual training programme that is going to resume on August 8 but I heard Mominul and Mustafizur showed their interest to join."
"Some other players will also join, and we'll design the practice schedule in line with that so that everyone can get the opportunity to practice properly," the former skipper said, adding that they are yet to decide on group training.
"We have to see the situation first. The coronavirus situation is yet to be under control, so we have to think about all the things properly. We are really eager to start group practice sessions as early as possible but we don't want to take risks."
Both Mominul and Mustafizur Rahman returned to their hometown after the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country hard. Both of them continued their fitness training from home as per the BCB guidelines.
They didn't join the first phase of the individual training programme, which started on July 19.
A total of 14 players took part in the programme which was held in accordance with the standard health protocol at four venues- Dhaka, Sylhet, Khulna and Chattogram.
The board then added Rajshahi in their list in which Nazmul Hossain Shanto started his practice. Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Shafiul Islam, Imrul Kayes, Taskin Ahmed and Mehedi Hasan Rana chose Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium to have their practice. Later they are accompanied by Anamul Haque Bijoy.
Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mahedi Hasan and Nurul Hasan Sohan trained at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna, Nasum Ahmed, while Syed Khaled Ahmed practiced at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium and Nayeem Hasan trained at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.
The BCB was initially reluctant to prepare a roadmap for individual training due to the players' health issue in aspect of the spread of the deadly virus despite the fact some of the other cricketing nations already began it in their respective countries.
But after a virtual meeting with 35 players, the board decided to begin the individual training that was largely decorated with fitness drills. The bowlers didn't get the chance to bowl as they were left satisfied with just running and doing gym. The batsmen however got the chance to bat but at the bowling machine at indoor facilities.
