One of the most powerful boards in the world of cricket is facing a stern test as the squad they have sent to play in Bangladesh has expressed dissatisfaction on the location of their stay during the tour. Most national teams that tour Bangladesh stay at the Pan Pacific Sonargoan hotel. Team India has also been given the same venue, and are not satisfied and want to move their base to Gulshan. This is the same place that the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi stayed during his visit to Bangladesh.
The India team is reportedly dissatisfied with the stay in the hotel as they felt that it was too crowded. The team who are on an 18 day tour to the Bangladesh, had to stay at the hotel for most of the first test which was washed out due to rain. The Hotel is reportedly situated in the middle of many restaurants and this has made it hard for the players to move in and out of the hotel freely.
The issue was already conveyed to the Bangladesh Cricket Board after the 2nd day of the only Test match on the tour. However, the BCB officials were able to convince the players and officials at that time. But the Indian team management bought up the issue once again after it was not resolved just 4 days later.
Daily Kaler Kantho, a local paper reported Dey, who said that a decision was to be taken on Tuesday night. But he added that it would be hard to change hotels in between tours. He reasoned out saying that it would be hard for them to provide rooms at such short notice and that they will not be able to provide the same amenities at a different place.
However, he acknowledged the issue that the Indian players are having. He agreed with them and said that the place was definitely a problem and with a lot of restaurants, he believed that it would be hard for the Indian players to move freely in and out of the hotel.
