Cricket: Mashrafe will continue

Staff Correspondent
Mashrafe bin Murtaza is the last Bangladeshi player to play in 2020. He has been neglected in the national team since then. Although he has not officially said goodbye yet, the doors of the national team are closed for the former captain. Mashrafe continues to play domestic cricket despite knowing it is not easy to return to the red-green jersey. And exactly how long will he continue to play?

This time Mashrafe will play for Legends of Rupganj in the Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League. After the practice in Mirpur today (Thursday), he let the media that he will continue playing as long as people enjoy it.

"I have no goals," Mashrafe said. I said before. Simply playing to feel far better. I have no goals. There are numerous players in Dhaka League who have been playing for maybe 10-15 years. They have no other goal. Some play for a living, some for fun. Some play professionally, some for entertainment only. I always enjoy the game. Let's see how long I can play.

Mashrafe went to India to recover from injury. Back pain is not easy to improve. For this, he has to go to the operating table again. It will take a long time to recover from there. As a result, Thus, Mashrafe would rather not face this challenge at the present time. Notwithstanding, because of the injury, Rupganj couldn't play their first match in the association.

Mashrafe said, "I have come for treatment. It is a long time to do the surgery. Adjust the moment to play as much time. Then there is the big gap, there is no (limited-overs) domestic cricket. If the operation was done now, maybe domestic cricket would have been missed. That's why we manage as much as we can. '

Mashrafe added, 'It (medical procedure) is troublesome. Back surgery has never been done before. This time the doctor is forbidding the surgery. Because this surgery is a long-time affair. It will require around nine months to get fit. I don't think I have any point in getting back to the field following nine months of recovery medical procedure. Since the national team has no focus, there is no point in staying away from surgery. '

Mashrafe desires to get back to the second round of Dipil for Rupganj, "Our next match is tomorrow (Friday). Ideally at this point (play). How about we go to the field and see the rest. '
