The ODI series between Bangladesh and West Indies is scheduled to begin on January 20 and the decision review system (DRS) is to be used in this series.
However, the first ODI of the series can be played without DRS.
Cricbuzz According to the unavailability of an engineer working in DRS due to non-availability from London and following the Kovid protocol of Bangladesh, the use of technology in the first match is difficult.
The first four days will be spent in government isolation
Jalal Yunus, chairman of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) media committee, told Cricbuzz that the engineer for the DRS is coming from London.
He said, “You know that in England’s Covid protocol you have to spend the first four days of isolation in 14 days. You have to spend four days in government isolation.”
Let us tell you that before the start of the series, two West Indies players have been found to be Corona positive.
If the engineer could not come in time, DRS-Yunus will not be in the first match
Yunus further stated that he has written a letter to the Ministry of Health and has also conveyed to the Covid Authority to look into the matter.
He said, “It has to be seen what happens now. If we manage to get the engineer on time, then there will be no problem in staying DRS on the 20th. If it does not, then the problem of the DRS will be done in the first match. Can be finished later. ”
