Taskin, Anamul to fly later for UAE
While the Bangladesh cricket team departed for the UAE Tuesday afternoon, pacer Taskin Ahmed and batter Anamul Haque Bijoy had to wait one more day after failing to board the flight due to visa complications.
Taskin informed The Daily Star that the arrival of their visas was delayed and that they would fly to UAE along with support staff on Wednesday.
Naim Sheikh, who played his last T20I match at home against Afghanistan before being dropped for poor form, got into the side following his ton with the Bangladesh A side in the West Indies. He will join the side in Dubai from St. Lucia on Tuesday.
Newly-appointed T20 technical consultant Sridharan Sriram will be in charge of the Tigers at the Asia Cup as Russell Domingo was excluded from T20I plans ahead of the tournament in the UAE.
