Soumya Sarkar returned to the national team after a long time. Scored a great century in New Zealand, got wickets with the ball in hand. Rony Talukder was also on the New Zealand tour. However, he could not do anything worth remembering.
While these two are on New Zealand tour, national team captain Shakib Al Hasan is busy with other things. For the first time on the stage of the election, Shakib got the nomination of the ruling party Awami League. Captains of three formats are electing with the boat symbol in Magura-1 seat.
Shakib started the campaign a little later than others. However, from the beginning, he is getting the support of his teammates. Pacer Rubel Hossain campaigned with Shakib on Victory Day last December 16. Another cricketer, Nazmul Islam Apu, who is out of the national team, was also seen voting for Shakib.
But today, Shakib’s campaign was quite concentrated. Mashrafe bin Murtaza, who entered politics five years before Shakib, is a Member of Parliament for Narail-2 Constituency. This time too there are candidates for election with the boat symbol. Today Thursday, Mashrafe left his area and went to Magura.
At the time Mashrafe met Shakib, a small national team met in a campaign car. While Shakib and Mashrafe were there, Soumya Sarkar and Roni Talukdar were seen asking for votes for the boat. Also in the car were Sabbir Rahman and Abu Haider Roni, who were out of the national team for a long time.
Soumya and Sabbir were seen sharing that picture on Facebook. Sabbir shared it from his official page and wrote, ‘All together Alhamdulillah.’
