Excited Taskin wants to do something special at the World Cup
Bangladesh paceman Taskin Ahmed returned to the national team after being overlooked for the 2019 World Cup in England and his performances in all three formats for the Tigers saw him make the T20 World Cup squad in UAE. The pacer talked about his excitement while also reiterating that now he needs to give something back to the team.
"I am really excited to make the World Cup team and even though I didn't play the last two series due to the conditions but I was able to play the last game," he told the media today.
Taskin played the Zimbabwe T20Is but the home series against Australia and New Zealand were on surfaces that did not have much for pacers. However, Taskin had been working to prepare himself and has a plan for the World Cup. While in home surfaces the slower deliveries have been the cure for most faster bowlers, Taskin said other deliveries will come in handy in ICC tournaments.
"As part of preparations, I've been working with Otis Gibson and the team management. We will also have some time to prepare in Oman and I feel that our team can do something good. We will get 10 days and maybe three practice matches there. Whatever the conditions, we have to execute our plans. If cutters don't work, the execution of yorkers and length deliveries will be very important. Ofcourse it's an ICC event, so we have to keep in mind that tracks will be flat or sporting. It will be challenging for the bowlers but at the same time if execution is good, there will be opportunities to do well," he added.
"I am very excited and at the same time I want to gift something good to win matches," he concluded.
