Cricket has not been played for a long time due to the coronavirus epidemic. However, at the request of the cricketers, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has allowed the individual practice. The second phase of practice has started after Eid-ul-Azha. Bangladesh Test captain Mominul Haque joined the practice for the first time today. He also expressed his feelings over the practice in the field after a long break.
The Test captain practiced at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Saturday. He did not come to Mirpur since played the last match at Dhaka Premier League. Mominul has spent time at home since the lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic. Coming to Mirpur, the southpaw batsman has practiced batting, running, and gym. After a long break, it seemed quite difficult for him.
Mominul told media, "Alhamdulillah, I have definitely been able to return to cricket after a long time. I feel very good. Everything seems new to me from the beginning. It will take some time to adjust, maybe two or three days or four to five days. I hope I can adapt very soon. I was missing the thing for a long time. It certainly feels good to be able to restart practice."
Mominul added, "Since I was out of cricket for four to five months, I must have missed cricket." You know that England, West Indies, Pakistan, and Ireland have already returned to cricket. We are also slowly trying to get back to cricket. Let's see, maybe we have a test series in October against Sri Lanka. We will take preparation of our level best to do good in the series. I hope we can start well.
