Two Bangladeshi women cricketers, who took part in a World Cup qualifying tournament in Zimbabwe, have tested COVID-19 positive.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Director and Media Committee Chairman Jalal Unus confirmed the news.

Those two cricketers have been kept isolation. Their samples have been taken and BCB doctors are waiting for results, he said.  
The other players are staying at the hotel.

Bangladesh women’s team returned home on December 1 after the qualifying tournament of the 2022 Women's Cricket World Cup was called off midway due to the outbreak of a newfound strain of Covid-19 called omicron.

The cricketers, upon arrival in Dhaka, headed straight to Hotel Sonargaon to serve a five-day quarantine.
