The BCCI was in contact with the Bangladesh High Commission to ensure the travel of both these players back home safely.
The players underwent a COVID-19 test and returned negative before leaving the country.

“The players underwent RT-PCR tests and once the reports were negative, they were allowed to fly out,” Sportstar quoted BCCI official as saying.
