Mashrafe's love for his son

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza was busy on the phone with his wife for a long time, seemingly sad over some issue. He later revealed that it was due to his wife scolding his son, Sahel, for being naughty at school. The inspiration skipper tried to cheer his son up with a long conversation on the phone, attempting to create a humorous atmosphere by telling his wife that he himself was naughty during childhood so it was natural for his son to be that way as the skipper made things normal. It's not just on the field where Mashrafe inspires by his presence and performance; the 35-year-old does the same thing as a father, even if he is thousands of miles from his family.
