The star cricketer hopes to fulfil his promises made to the people of Narail

Bangladesh one day international (ODI) cricket captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza, the newly elected Awami League candidate from Narail 2, has extended his gratitude and vowed to uphold the promises he made to the people of Narail.

“In cricket, I always want to succeed by honesty and hard work, and that is the spirit I want to apply in politics as well,” he said at a press conference at Tahera convention centre in Narail on Monday.

Emphasizing that he does not believe in labels, the widely respected cricketer turned politician said: “I want to take the agro-based Narail forward; preference will be given to the development of the youth, prevention of river erosion and tackling the menace of addiction.”

Mashrafe also said that he will take steps to establish a university, medical college and an international standard stadium in Narail.

Replying to a question, whether he will be able to juggle the two professions, he said: “Until the World Cup, the main focus will be cricket."

As a ruling Awami League candidate, the legendary cricketer got 2,71,210 votes with "boat" symbol while his nearest contestant National People's Party (NPP) Chairman Fariduzzaman Farhad secured 7,883 votes with the "sheaf of paddy" symbol.
