National cricket’s governing body Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in a bid to resume its on-field cricket has developed a new mechanism of training for the players with the blend of ICC rules and regulations.

BCB officials said this adding that they will start the new training mechanism in the aftermath of the individual training sessions, which once again will commence from next Saturday at five designated venues across the country after the Eid vacation.

Under the new mechanism, they will start a small group of 3 or 5 or 7 players’ practice sessions following the ongoing individual training sessions. They will do it by following the International Cricket Council (ICC) health rules and safety protocols.

BCB Director and its Cricket Operations Chairman Akram Khan said the main challenge for them is to start group or team training, which they think will be a step forward for them to burst into the main cricket scene after a lengthy corona-enforced lay-off.

“We’ve a slew of international and domestic series and tournaments although few of them have been rescheduled after being suspended for an indefinite period,” Akram said.

While some cricketing nations returned to the field with international cricket, they are yet to start main practice with the bat and ball of the group and team work owing to the lengthy corona lay-off that delayed the overall mechanism to start cricket.

As of now, the BCB wants to move forward with all the players for which they will give a necessary directive to its medical department to devise a new mechanism for the players’ next phase training session.

But this time, it will embark on with the individual training session as the bulk of the star players is yet to join the practice party.

Tamim Iqbal, Mominul Haque, Mahmdullah Riyad, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Kumar Das, Rubel Hossain, Abu Jayed Rahi, Ebadot Hossain Chowdhury and some others were out of the first phase training session.

Tamim, who recently returned home from London after receiving a medical check-up for his severe intestinal pain, has been asked to maintain a self-quarantine for the next two weeks.

As a result, there is no chance for him to join the practice before mid August.

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza wanted to join the first phase of the practice session, but his infection with the COVID-19 delayed his desire. He, however, doesn’t seem to join the second session before August 15.

“We’ve plans for what we have to do whenever group training starts. For example, the basic challenge in skills training will be cricket ball. If a group of three or five cricketers hold training, they will use only a ball. Controlling it will be a challenge. We’ve planned it, but the reality is difficult as applying it on a cricket field remains a challenge,” said BCB Chief Physician Dr Debashis Chowdhury.

“We’ve that experience. Hopefully, we will be able to overtake the present challenge in the right way,” Chowdhury told The Independent.

But, he added, “We didn’t get any direction from the board to formulate the new way out of planning for the next level of practice.”
