Arrival of Bangladesh team "delayed"

According to the highly placed sources in BCB, it has been decided that the team will not travel on this date and the touring date may be delayed, if it is to happen.

There has been no clear direction on whether the Sri Lankan health ministry would relax the quarantine period and both boards are awaiting the directives. It is also learnt that the BCB has communicated certain "tolerable" things to the SLC.

Abu Jayed positive

The results of the 27 players, who were tested on Tuesday have come and all players-except one-Abu Jayed (right arm fast bowler) are found to be corona-free.

Eight out of the nine suspected players have joined the team in the hotel and now only Abu Jayed has remained at the isolation camp in the academy, it is learnt here.

The second important testing of the players has been scheduled for 25th.

Considering the uncertainty of the tour, the spin consultant, Daniel Vettori, who was to join the team in Bangladesh on 22nd or 23rd September has delayed his arrival, it is also learnt here.

"It will be too tight for him", one of the sources said.
