BCB pays Zimbabwe’s extra two days hotel fare


CHATTOGRAM, Sept 20, 2019 (BSS)- The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will
bear all the expenses of Zimbabwe as the visitors would have to stay here for
two days more.

Zimbabwe team officials were believed to be concerned about their extra
two days hotel fare after their hope to reach the ongoing Tri-nation T20
series final was shattered.

BCB came to their rescue like the way as they did by accommodating in the
tri-nation despite. They were suspended by the International Cricket Council

After losing the first three successive games, Zimbabwe are already out of
the tournament and according to standard practice the team that fails to
reach the final was expected to sign off from the hotel on September 23.

Zimbabwe team was in a dilemma over paying the hotel bills for the
additional two days as they intended to leave Dhaka on September 25.

According to official, the tourist wants to stay in Bangladesh for the
next four days after playing their last game against Afghanistan as they are
expected to conduct a small camp before departing to Singapore on September
25 to take part in a tri-nation series.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have also paid the plane fares of the
Zimbabwe team due to their financial situations. However, the Zimbabwean
board will return the payment later.

“Actually, it is a standard practice where a home board bears all the
expenses of the touring teams. Even if there are some financial issues of the
touring party, the home board tackles it and later sends an invoice to the
respective boards. I think it’s an internal matter between the boards,” BCB
CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury said on Friday when his attention was drawn
regarding the matter.
