BCB head curator Gamini not part of Australia series

Bangladesh chief curator Gamini de Silva won’t be available in the field during the upcoming home series against Australia as he is not part of their bio-bubble, confirmed a Bangladesh Cricket Board official on Wednesday.
 
The Sri Lankan arrived in Bangladesh on Wednesday and went straight to the Sher-e Bangla National Stadium, raising quite a few eyebrows considering a strict bio-bubble is maintained since July 21 that saw 140 people related with the series being part of it.
 
“He came to see the pitch and went back home afterwards. He had to see the pitch with his own eyes. Because it is an open space he came with his car and went inside through the Iron Gate and after seeing the pitch went back to his home,” the official informed.
 
“From now onwards he will conduct the next course of action through phone from his home,” he added.    
 
Both Australia and Bangladesh teams will arrive in Dhaka today at separate times as and will go straight to their team hotel, where they will be in quarantine for three days.
 
The five-match T20I series will get underway on August 3 in Dhaka.
