Mominul Haque, Bangladesh's Test captain, tested positive for Covid-19 with mild symptoms. The news came out just two days after Mahmudullah tested positive, which ruled him out from appearing for the Multan Sultans in the PSL playoffs next week.

"Mominul is coronavirus positive with mild symptoms," Dr Debashish Chowdhury, the Bangladesh Cricket Board's chief physician, told the news website Sarabangla.

Haque, meanwhile, said that he learnt about it on Tuesday. "I don't have a lot of symptoms except fever since the day before yesterday," he said. His wife has also tested positive, and both have quarantined themselves at home.

Like most of the top players, Haque has also been in all of the BCB's camps since September and has also been training individually since June. He played in the BCB President's Cup last month and remains in line to be drafted in one of the five teams for this month's Bangabandhu T20 Cup.

Previously, Abu Jayed, Saif Hassan and Mashrafe Mortaza had also tested positive, and have since recovered. A few cricketers and coaching staff from the Under-19 camp had also tested positive last month.

According to the official figures, there have been 421,921 Covid-19 cases in Bangladesh, with over 6000 deaths.
