Meanwhile, the BCB has sent 10 cricketers and two supporting staff of the under-19 team to isolation. They have been kept in isolation at the BCB academy after showing corona symptoms. The rest are in BKSP. The BCB has decided to suspend the camp of the Under-19 due to the postponement of the Asia Cup.
