On 12 July 2020, the Global Cricket Webcasting Media – ESPN Cricinfo shared one of my photo on their website and through their social media platforms. I took the following photograph a few days earlier in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
I described the image as “A group of young and middle-aged men are playing cricket in the hot and humid afternoon in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Due to Coronavirus pandemic like many other cities, Dhaka is partly under lockdown. The fear of virus could not refrain them participating in their most favourite game.”
ESPN Cricinfo titled the photo as: “Will the batsman beat the field? Mahmudul Hoque Moni captured a cricket game during a hot and humid afternoon in Dhaka.”
The image went viral on Facebook as more than 28,000 people liked, and nearly 500 people shared it.
