He came to his father-in-law’s house for the first time. Moin Ali is supposed to be his son-in-law now. But the bad luck of the English all-rounder. He has to stay busy with cricket, excluding his in-laws. He came to Sylhet to play for Comilla Victorians in BPL.
Moin’s wife Firoza Hossain is of Bangladeshi descent. Both were born and raised in England, but his father’s home was in Sylhet. Firoza’s parents once lived in the Pir Mahalla area of Sylhet city. Later he went to England and settled down. Firoza was born there and also got acquainted with Moin.
Firoza came to Bangladesh before and after marriage. However, Moin had never been to Sylhet before. Finally, he came to his father-in-law’s house for the first time, but that too with the help of cricket. However, the English all-rounder also has the desire to visit his father-in-law’s house on this occasion.
“My wife is from here (Bangladeshi),” Moin told reporters during a practice session at the Sylhet International Stadium. Her sister lives here, but her father-in-law lives in Dhaka. They are coming to Sylhet in a day or two. My father-in-law’s house is here. I came to Sylhet for the first time. My family always says, “Come on, let’s get out of Sylhet.” But I could not find the time. It feels good to come this time. ‘
Since Sylhet is married to a family, Sylhet language must be heard from time to time. However, this time he came to Sylhet and listened to that language a lot. It has made him interested in learning Sylhet a little better. It will be a little more convenient to talk to the people of the in-laws!
Moinai said, ‘I can say some syllabic words. I would be happy if I could do more. Hopefully, this time I will be able to learn some new words. The people at the hotel speak to me in Sylhet. I am also trying to learn. ‘
Not only because of family ties, but also because of Bangladesh’s relationship with Moin. In 2005 England came to play for Bangladesh under-19 team. Then in 2010 he played in the Dhaka Premier League as a teammate of Shakib-Tamim at Mohammedan Club. Duronto played for Rajshahi in BPL in 2013. The one-day World Cup winning all-rounder visited Bangladesh in 2016 for England.
From the experience of coming and going in Bangladesh so many times, Moin got a rough idea about the people and culture of this country. For the 34-year-old Pakistani-born cricketer, the country has become very close to him. “To me, Bangladesh, Pakistan and England are like home,” he said. I look at each place one by one. ‘
The experience of playing in Bangladesh has helped him grow as a cricketer, he said, adding, “Tamim, I played with Shakib. I have known them for a long time. Many matches have been played in Dhaka. The audience was great too. I have been able to use the experience of playing here in international cricket. ‘
Although he never played in the International Twenty20, he played ODIs a lot like the T20s. Towards the end of his career, he played 53 domestic Twenty20 matches and scored 1,014 runs at 138 strike rate and took 29 wickets. He said that he left the game before the franchise cricket became popular, otherwise there would have been a fight between the teams with him now! Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. The former South African all-rounder, who coached the Khulna Tigers in the BPL, said in an interview with Prothom Alo on his mobile phone yesterday that he regrets his visit to the T20.
