Since the conclusion of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Bangladesh’s ODI skipper Mashrafe Mortaza is sitting away from the national cricketing framework. In the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka in July, the opening batsman Tamim Iqbal stood as the skipper of the side.
While many expected Mashrafe to bid farewell to the International cricket after the end of the 50-over mega-event in England, the 36-year old refused to do so as he was hungry to play more for Bangladesh.
However, his return to the trade hasn’t been ideal as the skillful cricketer got himself injured while doing some batting practice in the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
Updating people about the injury, Debashis Chowdhury, chief physician of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), said that his injury is not serious and a few days rest would help him to be prepared for the upcoming edition of the highly celebrated Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). In the 20-over event, the Jessore born is set to represent Dhaka Platoon and lead their pace department.
