Mushfiqur Rahim said, "I watched the eye-catching picture on Maasranga Television and I was really interested to meet with the youngster. I wanted to meet them whenever it was possible.
"It's a nice feeling that young people follow me. The biggest thing is the sacrifice that Yaamin's mother is going through to make her child's dream possible," Mushy told the newsmen.
