BangladeshUpcoming test series in Sri Lanka It was put into doubt on Monday after its cricket chief rejected the Coronavirus restrictions imposed by the hosts. The purpose of the three Tests in October-November was to mark the return of two nations to international cricket, stopping professional sports around the world. but Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul Hassan said the situation in Sri Lanka, which included a 14-day separation for players after arrival – during which practice would be prohibited – was unacceptable. “The offer we have received is not close to what we agreed to,” Hasan told reporters in Dhaka.

“Under these conditions, it is not possible for us to play a test championship … It is not being followed in some other parts of the world where cricket is being played in the meantime.”

The government-designated facility in Sri Lanka has a 14-day quarantine, which includes a few hotels for all people entering the country.

Hassan said the players were unable to train together after suspending all sporting activities in Bangladesh in March to prevent the spread of the virus.

Training resumed in July, but as a precaution, only one player and one coach are allowed inside Dhaka’s main stadium.

He said, “Our players have not been in training for seven months. If we cannot train … it is not possible to play the Test.”

Sri Lankan Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa asked his country’s cricket board to work closely with the health department and find a way out between strict quarantine procedures.

“Given the importance of #cricket in the region, I have asked @OfficialSLC to consult the Kovid Task Force and reconsider the @BCBtigers case, Rajapaksa tweeted.
