PV Sports Desk : The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) won’t allow spectators in the stadium during the forthcoming Bangabandhu T20 Cup, thinking about the health risk, caused by the novel coronavirus.
Thousands of football fans enjoyed football at Bangabandhu National Stadium on Friday during Bangladesh’s match against Nepal. The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) gave 8,000 spectators the opportunity to enter the gallery, following standard health protocol.
However, the BCB is not walking that path. BCB director and media committee chairman Jalal Yunus said spectators would not be allowed to enter the field in the upcoming Bangabandhu T20 Cup.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all kinds of sports events in the country were stopped last March. Although cricket was played in September, football started in the second week of November. The match against Nepal on Friday was the first football competition of Bangladesh amid Covid-19 pandemic.
“I know it’s a matter of emotion,” Jalal Younus told the reporters.
