DHAKA: The incomplete 2019-20 season of the Dhaka Premier League (DPL), might resume at two specific places — Krira Shikhkha Protishthan (BKSP) and the stadia in Cox's Bazar. The league was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

After an online meeting between the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and several Bangladeshi cricketers and the players' association, the decision was taken but the authorities have not yet decided the time and roadmap for the resumption of domestic cricket.

Kazi Inam Ahmed, chairman of the cricket committee of the Dhaka Metropolis team, said during the meeting that there has been an attempt to ensure that the board, the clubs and the players remain "mentally prepared" to start the league in two-weeks' notice, whenever that might be.

"Players want to get back to playing but the BCB has to decide after talking to different government bodies and agencies," Ahmed told ESPNcricinfo. "We cannot mention a particular date because we haven't reached that stage yet. But I want the clubs to be prepared for a two-weeks' notice. The same goes for players and our facilities. We have to get things in order now, so that we can turn things around in a short time." IANS
