Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza has been struggling with his fitness for some time now as he recently participated in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with the help of pain killers to dwindle multiple injuries.
The medium pacer was expected to retire from the game at the end of the World Cup this year, however, he has not announced anything yet. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has now given two more months to Mortaza so that he could finalize his retirement plans.
Mortaza, who made his debut for Bangladesh in 2001, has been a brilliant ambassador of his country over the years as he led his national side to a number of famous victories. He might be given a farewell game in September as the BCB is trying to organize a one off ODI against Zimbabwe at home so that he could play in front of his home crowd one last time.
