As part of the BCB’s continuing efforts at facilitating its exit strategy following the disruption to programmes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, major international and first-class venues such as the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in Dhaka, Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) in Chattogram, Sylhet International Cricket Stadium (SICS) in Sylhet, Khan Shahaeb Osman Ali Stadium (KSOAS) in Fatullah, Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium (SKICS) in Cox’s Bazar, Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium (SANS) in Khulna, Shahid Chandu Stadium (SCS) in Bogra and Shahid Kamaruzzaman Stadium (SKS) in Rajshahi have been undergoing constant maintenance.

Over 100 groundsmen and venue personnel have remained active with pitch, outfield and facilities maintenance at the stadiums which is an ongoing process. Regular work includes watering, trimming and cutting of the grass, administering fertilisers and insecticides, top dressing, planting of Bermuda grass, removal of weed, rolling and sand filling. In addition, checking and servicing of ground equipment and machinery is mandatory at all stadiums. Technicians for power supply and water substations are also on duty.

“We are very mindful of the fact that we have to get our cricketers back on the field sooner rather than later. The process of resumption should start with training and for that, we have kept our grounds and practice facilities fully prepared and functional.” – BCB CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdury.
