In a recent interview Mashrafe was asked how important is family for a player. “That’s the most important thing as you have to stay with your family,” Mashrafe said.

He also claimed that no one understands anyone better than their family members.
“At times even your friend may not understand what you are going through, maybe the closest of them might understand. But I think it’s family which understands you the most as you eat, sleep, the clothes you like to wear and other things that only a family can know.”
