Other four seniors should not get disrespectful retirement like me: Mashrafe
The most successful captain in the history of Bangladesh cricket, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, has been neglected for some times in national team and it’s clear that he’s no more in Bangladesh’s future plan. Mashrafe has requested Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) that no cricketer should be given such disrespectful retirement in future what he himself got.
For the past few days, Mashrafe has been making allegations against the board officials in various interviews. Mashrafe also said that he had received harsh remarks from board officials after his poor performance in the ICC ODI World Cup. Even with his retirement, two selectors Minhajul Abedin Nannu and Habibul Bashar Sumon made much drama.
He also accused the two selectors of lying in the media. At the same time, the pacer said that he was waiting for the proposal from the board to officially retire from the cricket. On the contrary, Mashrafe has taken a kind of ‘retirement’ with slander. However, Mashrafe requested the board not to let the way he was disrespected be with the other four seniors [Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah Riyad]. He said this in an interview given to the country’s TV channel ‘DBC News’ recently.
“I will never get back the humiliation I faced when I left cricket. But I hope that Shakib, Tamim, Mushfiqur, Mahmudullah, who will leave cricket in the future, their time is slowly coming. Let their farewell be at id.least in a happy atmosphere and let this atmosphere be created in our cricket,” Mashrafe said.
There are many cricketers who have performed well throughout their careers but the farewell has not been memorable. Although Mashrafe regrets this, he is accepting the writing of his own destiny.
“It is not necessary for the BCB to contact me now. Because neither I am a paid cricketer of the cricket board, nor am I an official of the cricket board. Farewell may not be memorable. I could have died. Even then, the scene could have been different. It doesn’t matter I will be quite or the board is right if they contact me. Your outcome depends on how you proceed,” he added.
