Imrul Kayes has become almost a synonymous of comeback king in the country’s cricket and the experienced cricketer, who is going through his familiar fight of regaining a place in Bangladesh national side, expressed his determination once again. 

Imrul and some other enlisted national team players took part in the ongoing individual training sessions in different venues across country on Monday.

This is the second day national cricketers have trained under special arrangement under Bangladesh Cricket Board’s supervision after resuming practice since the corona epidemic postponed all sorts of sporting activities till late March.

At Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla national cricket stadium left-handed batsman Imrul started his training and wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Mitun continued his practice on Monday. 

The other two players from first day training session who are enlisted to practice in SBNS- Mushfiqur Rahim and Shafiul Islam- had a day off from practice as per schedule set by the BCB.

Both Mithun and Imrul took part in running sessions individually. Later these two batsmen batted in the indoor nets according to schedule time individually. This is the second day Mithun is practicing while Imrul returned to training and net session for the first time in the past four months. And the left hadner opener is delighted to be back in net session after a four month gap of batting session due to Covid-19 pandemic situation.

 “Today I have batted after almost four months. It’s obviously a different feeling. It felt really good. Although we have done few work-outs, some running sessions or gym work in our home but there was no chance of proper batting facilities at home. So it feels really good after batting with a proper set up,” said Imrul to the media after the batting session through a video message that was sent by BCB media wing on Monday.

“Hopefully we can utilize this chance fully. Now we have spare time where we can work on our skills or fitness improvement. I think it’s high time for players to utilize this time and improve our individual skill and fitness level to the next level,” he concluded. 

Initially nine cricketers were scheduled to practice at four different venues across the country. But one more cricketer has been included in the list as left arm pacer Mehedi Hasan Rana will train at SBNS from Tuesday.

These individual training sessions will take place until next Sunday as per schedule set by BCB. Apart from SBNS, off spinner Nayeem Hasan is scheduled to train at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong while Nurul Hasan Sohan and Mahedi Hasan will train at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna and pacer Khaled Ahmed and all-rounder Nasum Ahmed will train at Sylhet Stadium.
