Taskin Ahmed on his T10 league experience and World Cup hopes

“Playing in a franchise-based league for the first time was a great experience. There is a different pressure in franchise cricket and I feel playing these types of leagues gives a very good experience. Also, being able to play them when the opportunity arises is a good thing,” Taskin told The Daily Star.

Taskin Ahmed is a fast bowler who plays for Bangladesh. He has played 13 Tests, 59 ODIs, and 54 T20Is and taken 30, 81, and 52 wickets in each format. He did not get many chances to play before because there were other senior bowlers like Mashrafe Mortaza and Rubel Hossain. But when he got regular chances to play, he showed that he is a very good bowler.

Taskin recently played in a T10 league in Zimbabwe for a team called Bulawayo Braves. He played seven matches and took 11 wickets. He did not give away many runs and his average was 10. He said that playing in this league was a great experience for him. He said that playing in different leagues helps him to improve his skills as a fast bowler.

“I want to keep my improvement curve upward. Giving my best and trying smartly is what is in my control,” Taskin said.

Taskin also talked about how he bowled in the T10 league and how he is working hard to be ready for the matches.

“Batters’ intent in T10 cricket is very high and it is not easy to bowl economically. I was focusing on execution. It was a great experience, it doesn’t matter whether the format is Test or T10. It’s difficult to hit good deliveries and when you can execute according to your strengths that’s always the best thing. The tournament went very well but there are big tournaments coming ahead for me and I will try to do well. Process-wise, my work now is to do the hard work off the field and practice the right way before giving my best on the field.”

Taskin will play an important role for Bangladesh in the next ODI World Cup. He will have to bowl well with the new ball and also at the end of the innings. His experience of playing in the T10 league, which is very hard for bowlers, could help him a lot in the World Cup.

Some additional details that I found from other sources are:

  • Taskin made his international debut in 2014 against India.
