Former Bangladesh skipper Mashrafee bin Murtaza stood by the coaches of Dhaka Metro cricket academy, aiding them financially.
From his ‘Narail Express Foundation’, a total of 82 coaches got Tk 3,000 each at a time when the Covid-19 hit Bangladesh hard.
Mashrafee has recently put his bracelet that hugged his wrist since he joined the national team in 2001, up for auction. In the auction, the bracelet, which he termed as lucky for him, was sold for a whopping amount of Tk 42 lakh.
The money raised from the auction went to the Narail Express Foundation from which Mashrafee spent the money for the vulnerable.
Mashrafee has also provided Tk 1 lakh for the financially needy student of Dhaka University. The amount was handed over to DUCSU.
