New Delhi : The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is doing everything possible to restore cricket. The BCCI wants to start an isolation camp for players, support staff and others, for which the board is looking for a safe zone. The BCCI wants someone to meet the government in a safe place, where players sitting in their homes for two months have a chance to train.
The National Cricket Academy (NCA) of Bengaluru has all the facilities for training, but there is a considerable outbreak of corona virus. In such a situation, the board’s idea is to provide a quarantine and sanitized environment for the players, coaching staff and others including catering, security and housekeeping. The BCCI is also considering other alternative locations, which would be considered ‘safe’ by the central government.
A BCCI official has told the Times of India, “The safety of the players is the priority of the board. We have to work on the logistics and see if Bengaluru is safe. If things don’t look right at all, we will be in those areas of the country.” Looking for those who are outside the containment zone. The camp will be sanitized. There is also an option to open a local stadium for senior players “
The official further added, “Players, team management and cricket operations teams are in constant touch to deal with every issue.” Everyone will be selected for the camp, from players to general staff will have to fulfill the health conditions and will not have to go out of the camp area. However, from the point of view, it is difficult to organize a camp in the near future. This may take more than a month and will depend on the exemption given by the government after 18 May.
