The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced a one-time amount of BDT 20,000.00 (Twenty Thousand Taka) per person to assist women cricketers who had appeared in the 2018-19 Women’s NCL and have been in BCB’s selection camps in 2019-20.
All cricketing activities of the BCB including women’s tournaments and training camps have been postponed indefinitely in relation to the COVID-19 outbreak.
BCB President Nazmul Hassan, MP said: “Just like their male counterparts, the majority of women cricketers also look towards domestic events for an earning. Besides, we had training camps scheduled for women players which have been hampered by the prevailing COVID-19 situation. The cricketers have been forced to pass a period of non-activity and they need our support.”
