BCB announces U-19 squad for four-week camp in BKSP
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced the Under-19 Preliminary Squad for a four-week residential skill camp at the Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protisthan (BKSP).
The squad comprises a total of 45 players, which will be trimmed down after the camp.
In a press release sent on Monday, the BCB said, the cricketers will undergo Covid-19 tests from August 15-19, which will be followed by fitness training sessions.
Skill training will commence from August 23 and will continue up to September 18. The preliminary squad will also play eight practice matches during the camp.
The BCB emphasized more on the Under-19 team, considering it will go to West Indies in 2022 to defend the Youth World Cup, which Akbar Ali and his team won earlier this year, beating mighty India by three wickets. The board also planned to arrange at least 30 matches for the U19 team, which will be finally announced after this residential camp.
