SLC ‘easing up’ on BCB’s terms
Sri Lanka Cricket [SLC] is going through a busy time to set a revised tour plan to host Bangladesh for the three-Test series under the ICC Test Championship.
After Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul Hassan called the SLC's health protocols 'historically unique', SLC got involved in a series of meetings with concerned authorities in the government.
An SLC team led by president Shammi Silva met with the country's head of national operation centre for prevention of Covid-19 outbreak (NOCPCO) Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva, chief of defence staff and commander of the army at the army HQ on Tuesday.
One of the SLC members, during the meeting, listed a copy of the blueprint protocol that has now been laid in connection with the Bangladesh tour beginning on September 27.
Even though SLC is expected to go through further discussions with health authorities, it has already laid plans that would meet most of BCB's terms. According to sources, SLC is considering to move away from their stance of mandatory 14-day quarantine period towards a week-long isolation period for Bangladesh.
