Injury has been Mashrafe Bin Mortaza’s biggest enemy since the beginning of his career. Due to this problem, the star pacer missed many important matches and tournaments in his long career. He is still not getting rid of the injury problem. Mashrafe got injured again while playing in Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). Due to which doubts have arisen about his performance in the remaining matches of the tournament.
Mashrafe injured his groin while playing in the match against Khulna Tigers in BPL. Due to that injury, he did not play in the next match against Rangpur Riders. Sylhet Strikers head coach Rajin Saleh spoke about the injury of the team captain. He told the media that Mashrafe will not be able to play in the remaining matches of the group stage. Even in the playoffs, there are doubts about his play.
In this context, Rajin said, “Mashrafi is suffering from a groin injury. That’s why he will not be able to play in the remaining matches of the group stage. We cannot say for sure whether we will get him in the play-off matches or not.”Physio says it takes 10 to 12 days to recover from this type of injury.Mashrafe is also aware of his own situation. But we are hoping that he will play in the Sylhet jersey in the play-off match. “
Mashrafe is in a good rhythm so far in this BPL. The pacer, who has retired from international cricket, is still reigning with the best. He has played 10 matches in Sylhet’s jersey and has taken 12 wickets. Mashrafe’s name is also in the top ten list of the tournament’s best wicket-taker bowlers. He is the pillar of Sylhet’s bowling.
Meanwhile, if Mashrafe does not play in the remaining matches, Sylhet will also miss his leadership. Because, until now, Sylhet is running at a great speed by playing under the leadership of ‘Captain Fantastic’. The team has already confirmed the first place in the play-offs. Sylhet is seeing a radical change in the BPL mainly by Mashrafe’s leadership. The team did not get such success in any previous tournament.
