Several members of the Afghanistan touring party in Bangladesh, including some players, have tested positive for Covid-19. It is understood that the Afghanistan squad, currently training in Sylhet ahead of a white-ball series against Bangladesh, have been asked to go into isolation for 48 hours - which ends on Wednesday - before they appear for fresh tests.
The BCB has extended its support to the visitors, even though technically, the tour hasn't started, and the Afghanistan squad is in Sylhet, since February 12, on their own.
"Definitely we will support them in this situation," Jalal Yunus, the BCB cricket operations chief, said. The visiting side will come under the BCB's care officially on February 19. The tour is scheduled to start on February 23, with the first ODI in Chattogram, followed by two more games at the same venue on February 25 and 28. This will be followed by two T20Is in Dhaka on March 3 and 5.
