But yeah, no one can say for sure whether any of our cricketers will fast if he is required to do so during a match.
yes, as far as my little knowledge goes, that is correct. but if u go in a different city/place and have a house in that city, u r considered a local. by that standard, even those who dont live in Dhaka but got a house of thier own or renting, they would be considered local.
and if they r travelling to india, surely they r Musafir. they can skip that day of fasting but hv to make it up only 1 day for each day of non-fasting when available.
Also im not quite sure what's the fatwa on this. if you hv a job that is physically high demanding, can u or can u not skip the fasting?? may be our more knowledgable brothers/sisters can enlighten us.
and pls dont compare basketball with cricket. its like comparing apples with orange. both r sports for sure but demands different needs. basketball is only 80 mins ( im not sure) game under a closed roof air conditioned game while cricket is an open field under the sun 8 hr game.
