The series between the Bangladesh U19 team and its Pakistani counterparts, set to run from April 19 to May 5, is highly unlikely as the COVID-19 infection rate in the country is rising alarmingly, Bangladesh officials said Cricket board on Sunday.

The Pakistani U19 selection is expected to arrive in Dhaka on April 12th to play a four-day game and four games over 50.

According to the decision of the Bangladeshi government, from today to To impose a nationwide lockdown on April 11, the BCB Game Development Committee Chairman Khaled Mahmud believes the chances of this series happening in the current circumstances are very slim.

« The chances are very low. Before they even cancel, both boards will discuss the matter. But I think that’s highly unlikely right now, « the former Bangladesh captain told New Age.

AEM Kawser, director of BCB game development, told New Age that the board is continuing its preparation, but he is not overly optimistic about the series.

“We run cricket series these days by following the global standard for health safety. We are creating a bio-safe bubble that will house transportation, hotel and property staff, including players and support staff, said Kawser.

« The players will come and stay in isolation until they get negative on multiple tests fail. But despite everything, it’s highly unlikely. The suspension is until the 11th and they come on the 12th. Let’s see what both boards decide, but at this moment the series seems highly unlikely, ”added Kawser.
