Mushfiqur to auction his bat

By The Assam Tribune

DHAKA, April 20: Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has decided to auction his bat, with which he scored a double hundred against Sri Lanka in 2013, to raise funds for the COVID-19 relief work in his country.

�I am putting up the bat with which I made a double hundred for auction,� Mushfiqur told the Dhaka-based Bengali daily Prothom Alo.

�It will be put up online, so let�s see how we can go about it. I urge everyone with the ability to push up the price of the bat since the proceeds will be spent entirely for the poor people.� More than 2000 have tested positive for coronavirus in Bangladesh.

Last week, star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan had urged his fellow players to help the poor by auctioning their equipment and jerseys. England wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler raised 65,000 pounds by auctioning his World Cup final jersey. � PTI
