Bangladesh coach Russel Domingo wants cricketers to stay away from watching FIFA World Cup 2022 semi-final | BANvIND

Xtra Time Web Desk: Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo on Tuesday suggested the test players not to stay awake till late night to watch the FIFA World Cup 2022 semi-final between Argentina and Croatia ahead of the Test match against India starting the same day at 9:30 am local time. The first test match between India and Bangladesh will start from Wednesday, December 14 at the Zahur Ahmed Chaudhury stadium.

‘We have to go to bed, simple as that. You can’t be watching football till three in the morning, and play the Test that starts at 9:30am. It is stupid. I’d be disappointed if they did,’ Domingo told reporters in Chittagong.

Argentina will play against Croatia in the first semi-final of the Qatar World Cup today. The match will start at 1:00am Bangladesh time.  

Bangladesh team trained on Tuesday at Zahur Ahmed Chaudhury stadium ahead of the test match starting tomorrow. Most of the cricketers’ eyes will probably going to be glued to the TV screens watching Argentina-Croatia game. For Russell Domingo, there was no question regarding what the players should do.
