Taskin makes quiet comeback


Pacer Taskin Ahmed made an unassuming comeback to cricket, with a wicketless outing for his side Legends of Rupganj in their final first phase match in Dhaka Premier League match against Uttara Sporting Club in Mirpur on Wednesday.
Taskin, who sustained an ankle injury during a Bangladesh Premier League match on February 1, returned to cricket after nearly a gap of two-and-a-half months.
Taskin finished with 0-36 in five overs in his comeback, although his team-mates were able to restrict Uttara to 180-8 and win the game easily by nine wickets.
The 24-year old came to bowl in the 10th over and was greeted with a boundary by Shanaj Ahmed and conceded another boundary in the last ball of the over before he finished his first spell in four overs.
He bowled one over in his second spell conceding 11 runs.
‘He took the field after a long time. It will take time to get back the rhythm,’ Bangladesh selector Minhajul Abedin told reporters in Mirpur.
‘This is just the first match which he started and as he was in injury for a long time it will take time. There are many matches of Super League. I think it will take time to get full fitness.
‘We don’t have any doubt over his talent. Let’s see what he does in the super league,’ he added.
