Taskin Ahmed, the Bangladeshi pace bowler, stated on Tuesday that he plans to make a return to competitive cricket by competing in the Bangladesh Premier League, which is set to begin on January 19 and is the nation’s only franchise-based Twenty20 competition.
Due to a shoulder rupture sustained during the World Cup, Taskin was unable to participate in the 50-over global event held in India last year.
Taskin missed the subsequent white-ball return tour and the two-match Test series against New Zealand at home after being put on a rehabilitation program to restore full health and resume competitive cricket after the event.
“With Allah’s mercy, I have improved from before. After bowling on Tuesday at the BCB academy, Taskin told reporters, “I had a problem in my shoulder, but now I am better. I am looking to start with the BPL and hoping to start the new year well.”
“I bowled with a full run-up, and I feel better than I did after my fifth bowling session. “I hope to make a comeback with the BPL (if everything goes as planned),” stated Taskin, who Durdanto Dhaka selected. “The BPL is still two weeks away.”
In addition, Taskin expressed his happiness at the Pacers’ success in New Zealand. In the T20Is, Shoriful Islam was named Player of the Series, and the pacers were a major factor in Bangladesh’s historic victory in their first ODI in New Zealand.
“Everyone bowled so well, and it was a huge relief to see pacers doing well in New Zealand.” We ultimately prevailed in New Zealand thanks to the efforts of the pacers, and it is something to be treasured, Taskin remarked.
“I truly missed participating in the victory. I have always enjoyed bowling in New Zealand because the seam movement is excellent. However, in the end, we are all a team, and in the upcoming days, Bangladesh’s pace department will undoubtedly help us win more games,” he continued.
Taskin expressed his disappointment at not being able to attend the Indian Premier League since BCB did not provide him with the NoC. It was already stated by Cricbuzz that BCB is unlikely to give him an NOC.
The IPL is slated to begin play on March 22 and run through the end of May. In March, Bangladesh will play host to Sri Lanka for two Tests, three ODIs, and an equal number of T20Is.
According to what was heard, Taskin recently went to the board’s office to speak with several high-ranking BCB officials in an attempt to obtain permission to skip the Zimbabwe series, but something else was needed.
Taskin may undoubtedly assert that he has been unfortunate in the IPL. He was not released by BCB, hence he lost out on the opportunity to join the Lucknow Super Giants in 2022 to replace Mark Wood. “It hurts that I missed my third opportunity in the Indian Premier League because every cricket player dreams of participating in every franchise league. In addition to the IPL, I receive offers from other leagues,” Taskin remarked.
“The board refuses to release me when the offer is made for a variety of reasons; occasionally it’s because of games, and other times it’s because of my health. After our conversation, the board informed me that they would take my request to play in other franchise leagues into consideration. To be sure, I don’t feel good about missing these franchise leagues because I want to play and everyone else does too. “I am living with the hope that in the future when a chance comes I will get to play.”
