Bangladesh national cricket team could not fly to Oman as scheduled on Sunday morning after a tropical cyclone forced the sultanate’s Muscat International Airport to postpone all flights for now.
According to Gulf News, Oman has announced a two-day holiday for both public and private sectors on October 3 & 4 as the sultanate was lashed by cyclone Shaheen.
“International Airport has been postponed and rescheduled to further notice to avoid any risks that may result from the direct impact of climate conditions on the Airport’s operations,” Muscat International Airport authority said in a Tweet.
