BCB boss’s words offer hope
On Monday, when Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hassan said that it would not be possible to tour Sri Lanka under the strict and unique health protocols set by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), it would have come as a disappointment for those who were eagerly waiting to see the Bangladesh national side back in action after a long hiatus.
But his words also carried potential relief for domestic cricketers, whose hopes of returning to the field were raised when the BCB boss mentioned about starting domestic cricket "soon".
Ever since cricket was halted, there was always talk of bringing it back, preferably with domestic leagues. And with the BCB boss now confidently talking about it, it seems that the conditions in the country are now favourable to get at least domestic cricket back on the ground.
The BCB president's words came as a ray of hope for domestic cricketers as they have been waiting for this moment for the past six months.
