Mushfiqur to train individually at Bogra from tomorrow

DHAKA —Senior player Mushfiqur Rahim had to go for his hometown Bogra for some personal reasons but that didn’t refrain him from continuing the individual training.

After a gap of one day, the individual training programme of the fourth phase will begin from tomorrow at seven venues across the country. Bogra’s Shaheed Chandu Stadium is one of the seven venues, which hosts the programme.

As per the schedule sent by the BCB, Mushfiqur will train at Shaheed Chandu Stadium until the fourth phase of the programme ends on August 27.

Khadijatul Kubra and Sharmin Sultana, the two members of Bangladesh Women’s team will also train here. They in fact were training here from the beginning.

Mushfiqur, the wicket-keeper batsman was the first player to request BCB to arrange outdoor training. Considering that the players found it tough to do bowling and batting at home, he raised his voice.

After BCB rejected his plea, given the magnitude of the spread of the coronavirus in the country, Mushfiqur rented a ground in Badda to have his practice.

Later when the BCB decided to organize individual training programmes in accordance with the standard health protocol, Mushfiqur moved to Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium to continue his practice.BSS
