After finishing Chittagong’s conditioning camp of 7 days, Bangladesh Cricket team have come back in Dhaka last night. The conditioning camp will be started again from Sunday in Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla Stadium.
Ahead of the two-match Test series against Australia, a 29-man preliminary squad started their conditioning camp before Eid. At first they worked on their fitness under the trainer, Mario Villavarayan.
Head coach, Chandika Hathurusingha was not with the team at that moment as he was on vacation. He joined the Tigers a few days ago and then their skill training was started.
In the upcoming Test series which will be started from 27th August in Mirpur, Bangladesh will play their 2nd Test in Chittagong and so their conditioning camp was shifted to the port city for helping the players to cope up with the condition in Chittagong.
However, they also played a three-day practice match in Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong. In that match, only 122 overs were played due to the heavy rain.
The Tigers will play another practice match from 16th to 17th August in Mirpur and then the final squad for the Australia series will be announced. While talking to the media on Friday in Chittagong, BCB selector, Minhajul Abedin Nannu has confirmed this.
The mighty Kangaroos are scheduled to reach Dhaka on 18th August and then they will play a warm-up match from 22nd August.
