Earlier positive tests

The BCB had earlier announced that the duo of Test batsman Saif Hassan and their Head of Physical Performance Nicholas Lee were asked to go into self-isolation after testing positive for the coronavirus.

The 21-year-old is not the first Bangladesh cricketer to have contracted the virus as former captain Mashrafe Mortaza along with Nafees Iqbal and Nazmul Islam also tested positive.
