Former Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza has ruled out rumours about him testing negative for coronavirus.
The former skipper confirmed that he is doing well but has not yet tested negative for Covid-19, reports UNB.
Mashrafe tested positive for coronavirus on June 20. Since then, he has been taking treatment at his residence in Dhaka.
“News was spread by some media and social networks that I have tested negative for Covid-19. It’s not true at all. I have not retested yet. I hope to test against after 14 days,” Mashrafe wrote in his social media handle.
“By the wish of the Almighty and your prayers, I am well. I have been taking the necessary treatment at home. There are no health issues. Please pray for me and for all those affected across the country. I urge everyone to be careful. We will continue to fight together,” he added.
Besides Masrhafe, his younger brother Morsalin Bin Mortaza also tested positive for Covid-19.
The Bangladesh cricket fraternity suffered several blows as Tamim Iqbal’s elder brother, former Bangladesh opener Nafis Iqbal, and left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam Apu tested positive for coronavirus. However, all of them are doing well for the time being.
