Bangladesh Cricket Board on Thursday finalised the primary pool of the next Under-19 team with 28 young cricketers making the cut, who will defend their predecessors’ World Cup title in the next edition of the tournament in 2022 in West Indies.
The players were selected after a four-week long selection camp held at BKSP from August 23 to September 18, where 45 cricketers took part.
Former Bangladesh cricketers, Talha Jubaer, Mehrab Hossain and Mohammad Selim worked with the young cricketers throughout the selection camp, where the aspirants also played eight matches among themselves.
The selected players will now take part in a skill camp, starting from October 1 at BKSP under the supervision of Bangladesh Under-19 team head coach Naveed Nawaz and strength and conditioning coach Richard Stoiner, who are already in Dhaka and are currently in mandatory quarantine.
Before joining the camp, the players will have to report at the Krira Polli in Mirpur on September 29 and undergo COVID-19 tests on September 30.
In the upcoming camp, the primary squad members are scheduled to play five 50-over matches among themselves on October 17, 18, 22, 24 and 26.
