Rajshahi Kings players will bear their mothers’ names in their jerseys during their next match against Dhaka Dynamites at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium today, said a press release of the franchise. 

The press release, which was circulated on Tuesday, said it was not for any special occasion but to pay respect to the contribution of a mothers love in human life.

 “As we all know the role and contribution of mothers in our lives. Bearing mothers’ name in jerseys does not need any special occasion or day. Rajshahi Kings hence took the chance to remember the everlasting presence of the ‘heart of kings’”.  

King’s captain Mehedi Hasan Miraz was excited with the idea. 

“It will be my first experience with something like this. Of course to do something for our mothers is very special for us. We want to win the match and dedicate it to our mothers,” Miraz said in the press release.

Kings’ vice-captain Soumya Sarkar also echoed his skipper. 

“Of course it will be first time in our country. We have always played with our own names or nicknames in our shirts, now this would be something we did not think about. We always say we want to dedicate the match to our mothers, and this is the time we can truly show it. It is a chance for ourselves to make our mothers proud,” said Soumya according to the press release.

Kings coach Lance Klusener urged everyone to remember his/her mother at least once in a day. 

“My mother is a very special person. She is always the first person to ask me how my day was. I speak to her every day. Quite often we forget our mothers; we always worry about the people around us. I appeal to everybody just speak to your mother at least once in a day and appreciate what she has done for you,” the coach said.

Kings Chief Executive Officer Tahmeed Azizul Huq sees the occasion as a tribute to mothers. 

“Mothers can inspire millions of people and it is no exception to the Kings. We consider this venture as a tribute to real backbones of our nation,” he said.

The Indian cricket team took such an initiative for the first time in a recognized cricket match during their fifth and final ODI match against New Zealand at Vizag on October 29, 2016.
