“I reached the USA a few days ago, and I was a bit worried during the flight (due to Covid-19 pandemic).. But I tried to keep up with the hygiene directives and precautionary measures. After I reached the US, I headed straight to the hotel. I informed my wife and daughter that I would be staying here,” he said.

 The Bangladesh cricketer added: “Since I took the flight to the US, there is a risk of me carrying the virus. So, I decided to isolate myself. I didn’t even meet my daughter after coming here. It is very painful for me that I can’t see her. But I think this sacrifice is very important at the moment.”

“Those who are staying abroad, it’s important to stay indoors and avoid going outdoors. Another thing that one should be mindful is not allowing relatives or neighbours at your places. It’s important to stay at home at least in the next 14 days,” he further said.
