Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Thursday suspended all kinds of cricket in the country for an indefinite period, aiming to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus.
Board president Nazmul Hasan told media that the cricket in the country will remain suspended until further notice.
“As you all came to know all sporting events around the globe have been suspended, we also decided to do so. We have earlier postponed Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League. Now we have decided not to host any cricket until further notice,” Nazmul told the media at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Thursday.
“We will restart the game only if the situation gets better. We cannot tell any certain time to resume the game because we don’t know when the scenario will change. I don’t think we can start it before April 15, I fear it will take more time,” Nazmul added.
