Tamim, Shakib stand by Mosharraf
The national players, busy with playing against New Zealand stood by the former national spinner Mosharraf Hossain who is diagnosed with brain tumour last week.
Mosharraf will go to Singapore to have better treatment as the tumour is at very primary stage. "I have applied for the visa and an appointment has been set at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore," Mosharraf said here on Monday.
"The doctors said the tumour is at a very primary stage and if it can be removed successfully by an operation that should be able to cure me."
Mosharraf, who played five ODIs for Bangladesh, will soon apply for financial help from BCB as he needs at least 40 lakh to complete the operation. Some senior national cricketers like Shakib al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal have already contacted him for giving him mental support and according to the 37-year spinner it means a lot to him.
"Tamim sent a voice message along with text message from New Zealand and asked me not to worry as he knows quite a few people in Singapore," said Mosharraf.
"He told me that just to let him whenever a help is required and these kind of gestures are giving me mental confidence," he said.
