Dhaka [Bangladesh], October 7 (ANI): The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced a one-day competition between three teams starting from October 11 as a build-up towards the return of domestic cricket in the country.
The three sides will be captained by Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, and Najmul Hossain Shanto. The showpiece event will be played from October 11 to October 23.
The three teams will lock horns with each other twice in the league stage, with the top two teams meeting in the final. All players, support staffers, match officials, and others connected to the matches will be placed in a bio-secure bubble during the course of the competition.
Former Bangladesh ODI skipper Mashrafe Mortaza will not feature in the tournament.
"Mashrafe will be playing the T20 tournament but not this one-day tournament," ESPNcricinfo quoted BCB president Nazmul Hassan as saying.
"It is not that he doesn't want to play. [But] he has to be quarantined [after having been treated for Covid-19] and will need time to regain fitness," Hassan added.
