Taskin starts rehabilitation


With a view to making a hurried comeback in international cricket as soon as possible, speedster Taskin Ahmed has begun his rehabilitation on Monday.


Taskin was temporarily suspended from bowling in the international cricket along with spinner Arafat Sunny after Bangladesh’s qualifier match against Netherlands in the World T20. Both of them gave a bowling test in Chennai and were banned by ICC.


Heath Streak, the current bowling coach of the Tigers, prepared a guideline for the young pacer and set a work plan for his convenient.


Streak, however, will fly to his country Zimbabwe coming first of April and speculation is rife that the former Zimbabwe great may not return as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is yet to set his future.


Mahbub Ali Zaki, the high performance and Bangladesh aged level coach, will work with Taskin for the time being in absence of Streak. Zaki was also given the guideline by Streak as to how the rehabilitation programme of the bowler will be going on.


Meanwhile, Taskin Ahmed has shrugged off the initial mental trauma and he is now quite confident to make return to the international arena at the shortest possible time.


“I am quite confident to comeback as early as possible. The rehabilitation programme has been started. So hope for the best,” said the country’s one of the premier fastmen.
