As a result BCB have decided to
include a High Performance Unit with them at their own cost, but now SLC
have insisted that they cannot accommodate more than 30 cricketers, thereby
restricting the travel of the High Performance squad.
"A lot of terms are new to us. Many
countries have seven-day quarantine but they are being allowed to practice.
At some places teams are being allowed to get to the field after three-day
quarantine," Nazmul said.
"But the terms given by SLC yesterday
[Sunday] says none of our team members will be allowed to go out even from
the room for 14-days. Not even to have a food. We feel there is some reason
behind this. We feel that may be they are dealing a tough situation with
Covid-19 which we don't know about. They are playing domestic there but when
it came to us they are trying to impose these restrictions.
"We will have our team in Dambula and
not in Colombo despite that they are not allowing our team members to get
out from the room. These terms are surprising. Speaking of the practice
facilities they will not provide even the net bowlers and at the same time
they are not allowing us to carry any. This is not a child's play, this is
ICC Test championship. There is a big difference the way we are thinking,"
"We have informed then there is no
similarity between the way it is being thought of and the reality. It is not
possible to play Test championship series under the terms they are trying to
set. We are expecting to hear back from them tomorrow. We have one simple
message to them, the terms they are trying to impose is historically unique.
It is not possible to play Test championship under such terms. If they
invite us for further discussion then we will see where it heads to.
"We will not wait long for them to
reply. We have decided that it is not possible for us this way and we have
already started planning on things that needs to be to get our cricketers
back to the field. If they reply soon its fine or else we will have our own
set of plans and we will not get back from that.
Nazmul added that the board are
planning to resume cricket as soon as possible in the country.
