Bangladesh spinner Mosharraf Hossain has tested positive for Covid-19.

Hossain is currently quarantined at home.

Earlier, his father had tested positive for the deadly virus.

“My father tested COVID-19 positive earlier and he was admitted in the ICU of the CMH hospital,” The Daily Star quoted Mosharraf as saying.

“Later I also experienced some symptoms and tested coronavirus positive. My health is fine so far and I have isolated myself at home.

“My wife and my child however tested negative and they are living with her parents.”

The 38-year-old spinner had contracted brain tumour last year and had undergone intense treatment for the same for four months.

He was hoping to make a comeback to the domestic circuit this year after recovering from his illness.

Mosharraf has so far played just five ODIs in his international career, picking four wickets. He made his international debut against South Africa in 2008 in Chattogram and his last ODI came against England in Dhaka in 2016.
