Mashrafe Mortaza Contracts COVID-19

Former Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza has tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing some symptoms.

Morsalin Mortaza has confirmed that his brother Mashrafe Mortaza has contracted COVID-19 after suffering from fever last Thursday. He then submitted his sample on Friday and had later learned about his condition. 

In an interview last Saturday, Morsalin said, ‘He wasn't keeping well for the last couple of days, so he had undergone a test. The results have come positive and now he has been home-quarantined’. 

Aside from Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal’s elder brother Nafees Iqbal has also tested positive for the virus. In his statement, Iqbal says, ‘I had the first symptom ten days ago. I had a fever and had aches and pains in the body but had recovered by the third day. But I still took the COVID-19 test just to be sure and the result came back positive. I am doing fine at the moment’. 

Both Mortaza and Iqbal play for Bangladesh’s national team. Before giving up the captaincy, Mortaza has played for a total of 220 ODIs and 36 Tests. Iqbal, on the other hand, has been featured in 11 Tests and 16 ODIs. To further understand these cricket formats, visit Betwala.
