Usman Khawaja’s festivities took an amusing turn in Chittagong when he lost his shoes at a mosque while participating in morning prayers for Eid.
The Australian No. 3 attended the Eid prayers on Saturday at the Dampara Police Line Mosque, along with Bangladesh players Sabbir Rahman and Mominul Haque.
He was flanked by an extensive security detail that has followed both the Australian and Bangladesh teams wherever they have travelled since Australia arrived in the country.
“Grateful to find brothers from across the globe to celebrate. Eid Mubarak to everyone! Inshaallah you have all had a great day,” he tweeted with a photo at the mosque.
But in a twist, ESPNcricinfo has learned that Khawaja couldn’t find his shoes at the end of the service. “No, did you take ’em?” he joked in response to a tweet asking if he had found them. Later in the afternoon, he was back in his spikes for Australia’s first training session in town.
