Spinner Mosharraf Hossain, who was diagnosed with brain tumor in March this year, has been fighting against the deadly disease. 

The left-arm spinner had an immediate surgery of the tumor in Singapore and has been recovering well. 

However, now, the cricketer has to surmount another problem in his fight-financial problems. 

Mosharraf on his personal social media account Monday had stated of selling his property in order to raise fund for the remaining of the treatment, and this had shaken part of the cricket fraternity.

“Initially I had thought the cost will be around Tk70 to 80 lakhs as it was a slow growing tumor. However biopsy of the tumor revealed it was a high aggressive glioma and that I need chemotherapy to be fully cured,” said Mosharraf to Dhaka Tribune Tuesday.

“I have just come back (this evening) from Singapore taking chemotherapy. This is costing around $10,000 each and it’s a course of six months and in every three weeks. I am thankful for the immense support that I got from the community initially but I am at a point now where I need to sell my property to cover the expenses,” the cricketer added.

The BCB along with teams in the domestic circuit had come in support of Mosharraf initially. 

As it has emerged the support was not enough, it is understood that some of the senior national cricketers have asked the board to support a bit more for the cause.

“BCB always tries to support everyone in Bangladesh sports arena. Not only players but also organizers and those who had contribution for sports, the board tries to support everyone,” said BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury.
