BCB to start U-19 camp from Aug 22

  • Print


The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) decided to begin the training session for Under-19 boys on August 22 as they finally get the permission to set up a residential camp in BKSP.
The board has already selected 45 players, with whom they would start the camp and after some days will trim the squad. The final squad however will be going to West Indies in 2022 to defend the championship title which Akbar Ali and his team won this year, beating mighty India by three wickets in a nervy final.
The BCB was in quandary whether BKSP would give them the permission to set up a residential since the institution has the large number of students and games which they are to manage with utmost care, considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The BCB will conduct a health and coronavirus test of the players before they arrange a special training for the boys at the academy ground from August 16.
