Wicket-keeper batsman Nurul Hasan Sohan, who has been availing training facilities in Khulna since BCB had allowed players to use different training facilities across the country as a test case before returning to full-fledged training, said such an initiative by the BCB has made him hopeful about returning to cricket soon.
The BCB had allowed a number of interested cricketers to avail the BCB-run training facilities from July 19. The BCB had initially planned and scheduled a roster for training till July 26 but the board eventually extended the period by two days after star batsman Mushfiqur Rahim had expressed his eagerness in continuing training for a few more days.
"I want to thank BCB for such an initiative. We [cricketers] were frustrated as we had to stay put at home for the last four months. We were worried about our skills and fitness. But this opportunity for practice has made me hopeful of returning to cricket soon," said Nurul.
The BCB, who has been monitoring players' training closely to ensure a safe environment for the cricketer, also plans to extend the training period further after Eid.
