Tigers brace for 14-day quarantine

The Bangladesh cricket team reached Christchurch yesterday and started a mandatory 14-day quarantine period ahead of their bilateral series, which will run for over a month, against the New Zealand.

The visitors will stay at the Lincoln University Performance Centre during the quarantine period. All 35 squad members will undergo three Covid-19 tests between the first and sixth day.

However, the visitors will be allowed to roam around inside the hotel premises if the result of the first covid-19 tests comes out negative.

From day eight, the squad will be divided into five groups of seven members each and start using the training facilities such as gym and nets. After completing the 14-day quarantine, the visitors will be free to take in the sights as the Covid-19 situation in New Zealand is better compared to elsewhere.

The visitors are also expected to conduct a five-day training camp in Queenstown but it is yet to be confirmed. Bangladesh will be desperate to register a maiden win in New Zealand after losing all 26 of their international games on their previous tours.

The three-match ODI series will start on March 20 in Dunedin while the first of the three T20Is will be held on March 28 in Hamilton.
