Five Proteas Women Cricketers Stuck in Bangladesh due to Covid-19

Five members of a South African women's team have got stuck in Bangladesh after they have been tested positive for Covid-19.

Five members of South African women’s team have got stuck in Bangladesh after they have been tested positive for Covid-19, said the officials on Tuesday.

Bangladesh imposed a ban on international flights taking into consideration the drastic rise in Covid-19 cases. However, seventeen players of the South Africa Emerging team left early on Monday.

The remaining five have been put into isolation as stated by Shafiul Alam Nadel of Bangladesh Cricket Board.

“All members of the South African team have Covid-19 test samples before their departure from Sylhet. Five of them tested positive,” said Himangshu Lal Roy, Deputy Director of Osmani Medical College.
