Bangladesh Cricket Board turned down a request of wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim to resume personal training at the BCB facilities as the authorities said they were still concerned about players’ safety.
`Mushfiq communicated with us, he wanted to begin personal training. But we told him that this is not yet safe time to do so, he should train at home,’ BCB chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury told New Age on Wednesday.
Mushfiq is known for his hard work, but the global pandemic of coronavirus, which took 746 lives and infected over 55,000 so far in Bangladesh, confined him at home like all other players.
‘Training is important, but players’ safety is more important to us. We are working on disinfecting our facilities. But the job is yet to be completed,’ said Nizamuddin.
‘A few other players wanted to know if they can do individual training. But our message was same for all.’
Cricket remained suspended in Bangladesh since March 16.
