Mashrafe Mortaza - Personal Life

Personal Life

Mortaza was born in the district of Narail in south-west Bangladesh. Although he enjoyed playing sports such as football and badminton from a young age—sometimes going swimming in the nearby River Chitra instead of doing school work—Mortaza was more interested in cricket as a youth, especially batting. Despite this, his bowling is now his main attribute and his pace has gained him the nickname of the "Narail Express".

Mortaza has been described as an open and animated character who enjoys motorcycling. He used to travel from a local bridge onto the tops of passing goods barges. He is very popular in his home town, leading to him being dubbed their "Prince of Hearts". At Govt. Victoria College, Narail, Mortaza met Sumona Haque Shumi, whom he married in 2006. He has a daughter now.

Famous quotes containing the words personal and/or life:

    The pursuit of Fashion is the attempt of the middle class to co-opt tragedy. In adopting the clothing, speech, and personal habits of those in straitened, dangerous, or pitiful circumstances, the middle class seeks to have what it feels to be the exigent and nonequivocal experiences had by those it emulates.
    David Mamet (b. 1947)

    Most people get a fair amount of fun out of their lives, but on balance life is suffering, and only the very young or the very foolish imagine otherwise.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)
