No training for Tigers, NCA team depart

Friday, August 24, 2007

The national cricket team's training for preparation of the Twenty20 World Championship yesterday was cancelled.

The cricketers came to know about the cancellation only in the morning when they were about to leave home during curfew. The Tigers were due to report at 7.45 am at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. Situation permitting, the training will resume tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the National Cricket Academy (NCA) with special permission to travel during curfew left Dhaka in the afternoon for Australia.

The Academy will play five limited-overs matches, four four-day games and three three-dayers in Darwin during a three-week trip.
