Mashrafe suggests cricketers to get into action for relieving trauma
An unprecedented derangement in the mindset is all Bangladesh cricketers brought from the New Zealand tour. It was a matter of 30 seconds that saved lives of them in the Christchurch terrorist attack.
Following the cancellation of the tour and returning home, the national team stars, after spending a few days with near and dear ones, have decided to return to cricket field action to lose sight of the nightmare.
Bangladesh limited over skipper Mashrafe bin Mortaza felt the blankness of fellow mates’ minds although he was not in the scene and said he advised them to try to concentrate on cricket.
“I think the best way for them to get over the trauma is by returning to the cricket field,”
Mashrafe said as quoted by Cricbuzz.
He also said, ”Because if you lock yourself, then there is hardly any room to get over it. So I requested Soumya to start his DPL campaign soon. It is up to him to make the final call.”
Bangladesh opener Shadman Islam’s father, Shahidul Islam, who is also the part of the development committee in the BCB, echoed with Mashrafe’s statement saying staying aloof in home would never help them to recover from the trauma.
“I asked him to play immediately because it was clearly visible that he is under pressure at home. A lot of our relatives are asking him various questions regarding that incident,” said Shahidul.
”He was quite clearly not comfortable with it,” he added.
