Khaled Mahmud tests Covid-19 positive

DHAKA—The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director Khaled Mahmud Sujon tested positive for Covid-19 and currently has been in isolation at his home.

Mahmud, the team leader of Bangladesh national team, was supposed to enter the bio-bubble, created for the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka at Pan Pacific Sonagaon Hotel.

After returning to the country following the Test tour in Sri Lanka, Mahmud, also the former Bangladesh captain, was tested Covid-19 negative twice.

However before entering another team bubble, his sample was received and it returned positive even though he has no symptoms, said BCB Cricket Operations chairman Akram Khan.

“He is not with the team because of being tested Covid-19 positive. He was the team leader of Bangladesh national team. But since the series is being held in our country, it will not be problematic,” he said here today.BSS
