The Under-19 Asia Cup match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka was called off after one of the umpires tested positive for Covid-19 in Sharjah.
Bangladesh had moved to 130 for 4 in 32.4 overs when the players left the ground following the news.
The Asian Cricket Council said two officials have tested positive for Covid-19 and are currently safe and being treated in accordance with tournament protocols.
All personnel associated with this match are undergoing testing protocols and isolating until results returned.
BCB’s chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury confirmed that everyone from the Bangladesh contingent in the UAE are negative.
The abandonment means Bangladesh, whose net run-rate has improved, will face India in one semi-final, while Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka in the other tomorrow.
The final will be held on December 31 in Dubai.
The Under-19 World Cup is scheduled to be held in West Indies from mid-January.
Bangladesh are defending champions.
