Bangladesh batsman Saif Hassan and team’s new strength and conditioning coach Nick Lee have been tested positive for Covid-19, their cricket board confirmed in a statement. The tests were conducted on Monday. Following the results, Saif Hassan and Nick Lee will be kept under isolation.
Hassan and Lee will tested again in due course. Members of the Bangladesh national team have been undergoing individual training across BCB facilites since before Eid-ul-Azha, according to local media reports.
“We had decided that we will pause even if there were any signs of imminent danger. Quite a few people are showing symptoms so we will suspend activities for a few days,” BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury had told The Daily Star regarding the suspension of individual practice after training was paused.
