Shadman relived of complete 14-day quarantine

Bangladesh Test opener Shadman Islam said on Tuesday that he is feeling relieved of complete his 14-day quarantine at home.

Opener Shadman along with left-arm pace bowler Mrittunjoy Chowdhury and BCB’s medical unit chief Debashis Chowdhury went on to quarantine since returning from Australia on March 17.

Shadman went to Australia for wrist surgery while Mrittunjoy had shoulder surgery and Debashish accompanied them.

The trio went into quarantine as the government made it mandatory for anyone returning from abroad to be in a two-week home quarantine to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection.

“It’s a huge relief as I am a free man again,” Shadman told daily sun on Tuesday.

“Today I had lunch with my family after a long time and it was so special to me. Everyone used to stay away from me during these 14 days,” he added.

Shadman said that he spends his time reading books and playing games along with watching movies and listening to songs.

“It was quite boring to be honest because never went through this kind of situation in my life,” said Shadman.

“I downloaded PUBG and spent most of the time playing with and apart from that it was reading books watching movies and listening to songs,” he said.

Shadman picked up the injury before his debut Test against West Indies in 2018 but continued playing with some pain.
