Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director and its media & publication chairman Jalal Younus said they are waiting for the response of the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).
“We are still waiting for their email. We’re yet to receive but we hope we will get to know within the next few days,” Jalal Younus said.
“It’s not for us. The decision is for Sri Lanka Cricket. Actually it’s not for SLC. You all know they have a task force. This taskforce controls COVID-19 in Sri Lanka. SLC is waiting for their decision. We will get to know after they informed the SLC,” Jalal told media.
“Still we are yet to specifically tell them anything. We just told them to reduce the number of days from the quarantine. Along with that, there will be a chance of a practice facility for us after being arrived in Sri Lanka,” he added.
BCB director said they have no problem to take their final preparation for the tour if they give their final decision what they are seeking for.
“We’re ready. We had taken what was needed for us to take our preparation for the tour. If any positive answer comes, we could take our final preparation within a week. We don’t have any problem from that sense. One-two day may be changed,” he said.
“If the delay is further, in that case, we have to think something different for us. It’s difficult for us to say anything specifically from this point of time because the answer will come from them. It’s a decision of the national level. It’s even not for the decision of the SLC. So, we have to wait for their decision,” he said further.
“It’ll be worthless if we give them pressure to make a positive decision. They themselves inform us. We’re waiting for that. Maybe it might come within the next two-three days,” he added.
