Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hasan has made it clear that his team will not tour Sri Lanka for a three-match Test series unless they reduce the 14-day quarantine period. According to the BCB’s plan for Sri Lanka Cricket, the proposed 14-day quarantine will end on October 12.
Bangladesh will practice again for five days and will play a three-day practice match against Sri Lanka A from October 18 to 20. The first Test, after a two-day break, will begin on October 23.

The BCB asked Sri Lanka for a seven-day quarantine to give them an extra week to practice. However, the Sri Lankan board could not persuade its health and safety agencies to relax the rules of segregation. Nazmul has made it clear to Sri Lanka that they are not ready to accept Biosofty’s plan and are awaiting Sri Lanka’s response.
Nazmul said he had strong objections to Sri Lankan protocol on the condition that no player from our team leave the house for 14 days. They will not even be allowed to eat outside.
