BCB announce squads for one-day tournament
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will resume domestic cricket with a one-day tournament consisting of three teams. The tournament will kick-off on October 11.
It has been more than seven months since Bangladesh have played any cricket due to pandemic. The domestic cricket was also impossible to start due to the tremendous amount of coronavirus cases in the country.
However, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has finally started to make their steps with an intention to start domestic cricket. After playing two two-day practice matches, the players are now set to play a one-day tournament consisting of three teams.
The three teams are named after the captains of the team. Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah will lead the teams in the tournament. There will be a mixture of national, domestic and the u-19 cricketers in the tournament.
