The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) confirms that one cricketer and an official have tested positive for COVID-19. Test samples were collected on Monday (07 September) from 24 individuals including 17 players in Dhaka.

As they had no visible symptoms leading up to the sample collection, the BCB’s Medical Team has advised the player Saif Hassan and BCB’s Head of Physical Performance Nicholas Lee to go into self-isolation immediately in accordance with the COVID-19 management protocol until they undergo another test. It may be noted that Lee had earlier reported positive on 14 August in Dubai, UAE and negative on 23 August after 10 days in isolation. He also completed a 14-day self-quarantine on arrival in Dhaka prior to yesterday’s test. BCB’s Sports Physician Dr Debashis Chowdhury said: “Our consultant for COVID-19 is reviewing Lee’s case to determine whether it is a new or previous infection before advising on the management plan.”
