The 100-page Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) note by BCCI shows impact on domestic cricket training camps. With the SOP released stating a clause, it issued for resumption of training without 60 years and older support staff and ground staff to be disallowed. The move comes after a discussion on the current situation of covid-19 spread.
The SOP reads that the 60+ people are prone to be vulnerable. Besides, individuals with underlying medical conditions such as lung disease, diabetes, weakened immunity, etc. are also believed to be vulnerable and have threat from covid-19 spread. So the board confirms that the vulnerable sections would be discouraged from participating in the camp activities.
While the new SOP is incorporated, it’s the Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) and Cricket Association of Bengal that will be more affected. Dav Whatmore who’s 66 years of age works as a director of cricket this year for the Baroda team. Alongside the former India batsman Arun Lal who is 65, stands to be coach for the Bengal team.
