Among Covid-19, many players have left IPL 2021 and have returned to their country. Meanwhile, two more big players can return to their country soon. Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman can go home prematurely due to the series against Sri Lanka. Because strict rules have been implemented in the country regarding Covid-19.
According to the news of Cricbuzz, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Chief Nizamuddin Chaudhary said that players may have to return soon due to the new Covid-19 protocol. According to the rules applicable from May 1, people coming from India and South Africa will have to stay in Quarantine for 14 days before starting work. In such a situation, the Board will have to take special permission from the Ministry of Health to provide relaxation to the players.
Earlier, the board had taken permission for shorter quarantine period for foreign coaching staff and players. But the second wave of Corona in India and South Africa has created new problems in front of the board. Bangladesh team is going to return from Sri Lanka soon.
However, this rule will not apply to them. Nizamuddin Chaudhary said, ‘We have sought a plan for the next 15 days from both the players. Apart from this, information has been sought from the Health Ministry regarding the quarantine protocol for both the players.
Shakib Al Hasan is playing from KKR while Mustafizur Rahman is playing for Rajasthan Royals. Both were to return home by May 19. After this, both were to stay in Quarantine for three days. The three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka starts on May 23. The board said that if the health ministry is asked for a quarantine of 7 or 14 days, then both the players will have to return soon.
