  • Print


BSS, Dhaka :
Bangladesh's senior cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim visited Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) on Monday after almost four months as he was badly missing this ground, which witnesses his great moments of his career.
The wicket-keeper batsman however came here, maintaining all health rules, said a Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) official.
But he didn't come here for practice purpose as the BCB is yet to resume the cricketing activities, which stopped in the mid-March following the outbreak of Covid-19, a deadly virus that created mayhem around the world, including Bangladesh.
Mushfiqur posted a photo in his facebook, which showed he stood in the middle of the Sher-e-Bangla ground wearing face mask and hand gloves.
He wrote that he is missing the venue and waiting for the resumption of the cricket.
"Assalamualaikum all. Missing this wonderful venue. Only Almighty knows when we can restart our practice," he wrote in his facebook page.
Mushfiqur earlier requested the BCB to allow him training at the Mirpur ground, which was finally rejected, given the alarming rise of coronavirus. But the BCB has recently revealed that they are keen to resume the cricket as early as possible. To be more precise, the board is planning to restart cricketing activities till in July and hence they kept all the venues of the country ready.
