|| CF Correspondent ||
Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has admitted that his disappointment of losing almost a year of cricket in his cricketing life is as if age is catching up with him.
Bangladesh were scheduled to have played 10 Tests in this calendar year but the newly-emerged deadly coronavirus pandemic has forced the Tigers to cancel most of the Test series.
The 33-year-old keeper-batsman is also giving tough examination in his cricketing life as he can’t practice for the pandemic which is also quite hard for him.
The veteran batsman has admitted that they do not have anything in case of a natural disaster as he wants to see it as an injured phase in his life.
“No one has a hand in the disaster. It can be seen in this way, what would have happened if I had been out of the team for four-five months due to injury? We have thought as much in a positive way,” Mushfiqur told a leading bangla newspaper.
Bangladesh have to cancel all the series due to life-threatening COVID-19 pandemic has also left the wicketkeeper-batsman to remain himself in his time as a cricketer.
“As a player, this is a very difficult time for me. It feels bad. We are getting old as well. It’s been 6-8 months since we played any cricket,” the middle-order batsman said.
“I don’t know when we will return to the international match but first of all life it’s very important to stay healthy now. The situation in Bangladesh is not good, especially in Dhaka,” he concluded.
