Cricket West Indies officials happy with ‘concise and tight’ Covid-19 protocols in Bangladesh

It has been a tough time for all the players ever since the sports tournaments resumed. Cricket resumed with the England vs West Indies series in July-August and after that the IPL took place in September and October. Now three cricket series have started namely England vs South Africa, India vs Australia and Pakistan vs New Zealand and cricket is back in full flow with lesser fans in the stadiums.

But the players who have been travelling to different parts of the world in different countries in order to play, have been facing difficulties with the protocols. There is a rule to quarantine yourself for 14 days before starting with the practice session. This rule has made it difficult for the players to find their personal and family time, as they do not have days left in such a busy schedule to go back home.

Eoin Morgan and Jason Holder criticised these protocols saying that it was becoming increasingly difficult to cope with the busy schedule and not able to spend time with their families.

India left early for Aus:

Even team India left the country for the Australian tour on 10 November, way before the tour which began on 27 November. India underwent a long quarantine in complete isolation before getting on with the practice sessions. Same happened with Pakistan and England who travelled to New Zealand and South Africa respectively.

West Indies in Bangladesh:

The West Indies cricket board officials recently visited Bangladesh cities Dhaka and Chittagong in order to check the various conditions and the extent of virus in the country as West are scheduled to play against Bangladesh next year in the beginning. The officials are said to be happy with the arrangements they saw for the tour and the dates will soon be decided once the officials submit the report to board members.
