Players train in coach's absence
The Bangladesh national cricket team players took part in an unofficial practice session organised by captain Mushfiqur Rahim at the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) National Cricket Academy (NCA) ground yesterday.
With the BCB yet to receive a proper training schedule from head coach Richard Pybus and the National Cricket League almost certain to be delayed, the players decided to go through a few routine exercises.
"Some of the spinners were going through their training courses with Saqlain (Mushtaq), and Mushfiqur (Rahim) thought it would be a good idea to bring them together for some stretching," said NCA head coach Richard McInnes. The group, apart from players from the academy, included the likes of Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and vice-captain Mahmudullah Riyad.
