The World Cup bound Bangladesh Women's team has been hit by Covid, with a player and two members of support staff having tested positive for the virus as revealed by a BCB official.
”A cricketer and two officials tested corona positive. They are in isolation and after eight days we will again have test and if they come out negative they will fly to New Zealand,” BCB women's wing chairman Nadel Chowdhury confirmed to Cricbuzz on Thursday (February 3).
On Wednesday, BCB included wicketkeeper-batter Nuzhat Tasnia as a travelling reserve in the national women's squad as a precautionary measure. The 25-year-old is the second travelling reserve player in the side along with Shanjida Akther Maghla.
Bangladesh, who are scheduled to leave Dhaka later today, will begin their maiden 50-over World Cup campaign against South Africa on March 5 at University Oval, Dunedin.
