Meanwhile, all five teams had already checked into the Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel in the capital, where they are being kept in a bio-secure bubble maintained by the Bangladesh Cricket Board's medical team yesterday. Teams have already started training sessions ahead of the start of the tournament.

Bangladesh Test skipper Mominul Haque and T20I captain Mahmudullah Riyad had tested positive for Covid-19 previously, but the duo joined up with their respective teams after testing negative.

Bangladesh ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal joined Barishal's training session yesterday.

According to the dashing left-hander, his team made a few mistakes during the players' draft and he believes they will need to play out-of-the-box cricket to make a mark in the tournament.

Beximco Dhaka will take on Minister Rajshahi in the opening game while Barishal will face Gemcon Khulna in the second match.
