The BCB is likely to extend its hand to left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain Rubel in his fight against brain tumour.

Mosharraf last week was diagnosed with glioma, a type of tumour that starts in the glial cells of the brain or the spine.

The 37-year old, who featured in five ODIs for Bangladesh, met the BCB high-ups at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur Monday where he urged for support fighting against the deadly disease.

BCB cricket operations committee chairman Akram Khan informed that the BCB will soon take initiative to support the finances for the treatment of Mosharraf.

The cricketer will soon fly to Singapore and following necessary medical investigation, go under the blades to remove the tumour from the brain.

Meanwhile, it has been learnt that several teams where Mosharraf played in the recent past have come forward to support Mosharraf fight the illness. 

BPL T20 franchises Comilla Victorians and Khulna Titans have been known to have extended their support, along with Dhaka Premier League side Gazi Group Cricketers. 

Gazi Group had roped in Mosharraf from the DPL players’ draft for the ongoing season, only to see the player get ruled out from the tournament due to the illness.
