It was so painful but I knew I had to bat anyhow: Emon
Parvez Hossain Emon – one of the few names in Bangladesh cricket that will laud for numerous days ahead. Enduring excruciating pain of an injured hamstring, the young-gun stepped into the field once again when the team was in disarray and stood with skipper Akbar Ali scoring crucial runs.
Emon siphoned how great it was to feel to contribute in team’s winning a World Cup despite all the pains and bruises he had to endure.
“This is the best thing in my life. I’ve no remorse for not getting into the fifty. It feels so great thinking I contributed in my country’s winning a World Cup,” Emon said.
The 17-year old said he felt the presence of the injury in the beginning of the innings.
“I started to feel the pain when I was batting with 15. It became unbearable after getting into 25. I fell into the field. When I returned to the pavilion, I was thinking of going back resting for a while. But Bangladesh started losing wickets and it was not possible for me to sit in the dug-out.”
“Bishnoi was bowling terribly well, he was irking me as well but I didn’t answer. I was lucky to survive at that time. I could not play shots and even run because of the leg cramp.
“I was struggling to comfort my mind thinking I had to have that done. We could not have this opportunity again and again,”
Parvez Hossain Emon said.
