Former Bangladesh one-day international captain and law maker Mashrafe Bin Mortaza was still embroiled in his battle against the coronavirus, testing positive for the virus once again despite passing 14 days of his initial detection.

Mashrafe, who had tested positive for the virus on June 20, told New Age that he had sent his sample to get retested but the test results remained unchanged.

‘I got my sample tested for COVID four days ago. 14 days have passed; I will take another test few days later,’ Mashrafe told New Age on Saturday.

The pacer also informed that his health condition was stable.

Younger brother of Mashrafe, Mursalin Mortaza, who was also infected with corona, told New Age that both the brothers will go for a test few days later.

Mashrafe had taken various initiatives through his ‘Narail Express Foundation’ in the battle against the deadly virus but suffered a huge blow when his mother-in-law, younger brother and himself caught corona.

Cricketer Nazmul Islam and former cricketer Nafees Iqbal, who had also tested positive for the virus, have recovered from the illness.
