Tigers depart for Oman after last minute panic

October 4, 2021

Bangladesh’s ICC Twenty20 World Cup bound contingent faced some last minute drama before finally leaving for Oman an hour after the scheduled time on Sunday.
The Bangladesh team players, support staff and a few board officials were scheduled to leave for Muscat at 10:45 pm from the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka.
But at around three hours before the flight, they were informed by the airport authority that the flight has been cancelled due to the calamitous weather caused by the tropical cyclone Shaheen, which made land fall in Oman on Sunday.
However, just minutes after the initial cancellation, the authorities reversed their decision and informed them that flight will in fact take off an hour after the previously slated time.
At the time of writing this report, the flight was scheduled to take off at 11:45 pm, confirmed a source from the airport authority.
The Bangladesh team is supposed to stay in quarantine for 24 hours after landing and will stay in Oman before departing for Abu Dhabi on October 9 to play two warm-up matches.
