Afghanistan squad members in isolation after contracting COVID-19 in Bangladesh

COVID-19 has been engaged by various members of the Afghanistan team, including multiple players, according to the latest developments. Bangladesh will host the Afghan team in three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty-20 Internationals (T20Is) beginning February 23. However, there are currently ominous clouds hovering over the series' future. The Afghanistan squad, which is presently training in Sylhet, has been ordered to go into isolation for 48 hours, which will expire on Wednesday (February 16).

The Afghan side, in particular, has been in Sylhet on its own since February 12. Although the tour has yet to begin officially, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has pledged its support to the visiting team. For the uninitiated, the visiting team will be formally taken care of by the BCB on February 19.

Meanwhile, people who have received the virus will be tested again in five to seven days. If they return with negative results, they can begin training with the rest. The visiting team will arrive in Chattogram on February 19 for the ODI series, which will start on February 23. On March 3 and 5, the two teams will play two Twenty20 Internationals in Dhaka.
