Fringe cricketers to get individual training facilities

BSS, Dhaka :
While some of the national players availed the opportunity by training individually at different venues across the country, arranged by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), the players out of the national pool also could get the opportunity if they want.
The likes of Nadif Chowdhuy, Elias Sunny, Shamsur Rahman Shuvo, who are the known faces of the domestic circuit and also played for the national team at different point of their career before being discarded have been practicing to keep them fit at their own initiative.
BCB Cricket Operations Chairman Akram Khan said those players could avail the opportunity of individual training like Mushfiqur Rahim and others.
"Those who are willing to train individually could apply to us. The BCB will definitely arrange the facilities for them to train," Akram said.
But he is not in favour of training at group right at this moment even though the increased number of players mean it would be tougher for BCB to arrange individual training for all of the players.
Apart from the fringe players, some of the national players also showed their eagerness to train at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium and other venues after Eid-ul-Adha. So it is expected to be overcrowded.
"It would be tough to arrange individual training for all of the players but I am sure somehow we can manage it. There is still some risk so right at this moment, we have no plan to start group training.”
