Dhaka, March 22: The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Saturday (March 21) announced that it will follow the work from home policy from Sunday (March 22) owing to COVID-19 pandemic.
The staff who are not essential to stay at the office have been advised to work from home.
"In response to the evolving COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, the BCB has instructed its staff to work remotely until further notice from Sunday (22 March 2020)," the BCB said in a statement.
"Exceptions will be made only for work that cannot be executed effectively outside the office environment," it added.
The BCB had to cancel the two-match T20I series between Asia XI and World XI which was scheduled to take place on March 21 and 22 to celebrate the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the father of the nation.
Bangladesh's tour of Ireland and England in May was also postponed on Saturday (March 21) due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Tigers were scheduled to play in a three-match ODI series and then four Twenty20 Internationals against Ireland during a trip that was to run between May 14-29.
The pandemic has so far claimed over 11000 lives while infecting more than 275000 people across the world.
