Will Mashrafe play the upcoming Windies series?
As soon as the captain of Bangladesh Mashrafe Bin Mortaza decided to take part in country’s general election, there has been a lot of talk about Mashrafe’s future in Cricket and now questions over playing in the upcoming Windies series has been rightly raised.
The general election is all set to take plan on 23rd December and with the ODI series against Windies also starting on the same month, it’s quite difficult say at the moment if the captain of Bangladesh will play in the series or not.
“It’s difficult [to say whether he will play the West Indies series]. He will definitely play in the World Cup. There is a date for submitting the form and I don’t know for sure when he will submit it and not aware of his programs. I am supposed to meet with him today and hopefully I will know the details today. If there is an opportunity then definitely he will play. Even if has the opportunity to spare one day, then he will. Playing should be his priority.”
Mashrafe bought the form for Narail-2, a constituency where Sheikh Hafizur Rahman, district president of Workers Party of Bangladesh, is the current lawmaker. The last date for submitting the candidacy form is November 28 and selection will take place on December 2. The captain will be extremely busy due to all these and a huge concern rises for the Bangladesh team.
