Bangladesh’s influential skipper Mashrafe Mortaza’s hamstring strain has lingered on for quite some time. Experiencing frequent bouts of injuries, the medium-pace all-rounder has still continued to represent his team on the international arena.
Once again, his hamstring injury worsened during the warm-up game against India where he could manage 6 overs before going off the field and not returning to bat.
“I pulled a hamstring during the sixth over. I could have stopped after four or five overs but Rohit and Kohli were looking to score runs quickly during that period. I felt that I needed to practise bowling in such a situation,” he narrated.
However, the 35-year-old is fully prepared to lead his team out on the field in their opening World Cup game against South Africa on June 2. Not bothered by the hamstring strain, Mashrafe is confident of putting up an impressive show.
