The newly elected Members of Parliament took oath on Thursday. Mashrafe Bin Mortaza also took oath. The Bangladesh ODI captain came there wearing Mujib Coat following the ideology of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. After the oath taking ceremony the field man rushed for the field. He went for practice wearing the much known jersey and trouser. But his practice was limited centering the gym and running. But on Friday keeping ahead the first match of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) scheduled from tomorrow Mashrafe did his complete preparation.

This is Mashrafe. Field and cricket always get priority to him. Mash feels comfortable as a cricketer but it is all set to play as a Member of Parliament. But he does not want to see the two worlds being together.

On Friday to the newsmen the tigers captain said, I am totally a field man, a cricketer. I want to think myself as a cricketer. I have come so far as a cricketer. So I do not want to think myself beyond a cricketer. I have become a Member of Parliament after winning the election and there is no relation with cricket field with this.

The 35 years old cricketer will again lead the defending champion Rangpur Riders. By not keeping the challenge of retaining the trophy rather playing good match by match is his target. Mashrafe said, it is not like that we have to be the champion. But it always work in mind that we are the defending champion. This time the aim will be to do better from the beginning.

So Mashrafe’s attention is in the first match of Saturday. Not only his, the attention will be there for the whole nation. Because, for the first time an elected MP is going to play BPL.
