Bangladesh- New Zealand
Bangladesh will feel Taskin’s absence, says Morrison
The way fast bowler Taskin Ahmed got going in the recently concluded Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), he is set to be the team’s key weapon in New Zealand.
The former Kiwi pace Danny Morrison felt that Bangladeshi pace unit will be weakened by the absence of Taskin Ahmed as the pace bowler was ruled out due to an ankle injury after being included in the squad after a two-year gap on the back of his impressive performance in BPL.
“Exciting pace bowlers you have got, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel. I see some outside chance. Well, Taskin is quick enough. Rubel is definitely quick enough. They have different heights. A couple of left-arm pacers. They are quite exciting. They got the ball to swing. There is some talent with Khaled Ahmed. The same thing, he is tall. He hits the pitch hard. I like what I have seen with the pacers from Bangladesh here in BPL 6,’’ he said.
“It’s a real shame because he [Taskin] was good to go as a strike weapon,’’ said Morrison. “It's hard when you try to develop young guys to come through. It's a shame about Taskin. He would have been a real go-to guy,’’ he added.
“I think there is Khaled Ahmed, I liked him as well. It's going to be tougher, they haven't won a Test match there. And Hamilton, could swing around a bit. It's going to be interesting to see what's the weather like. If it's hot warm and humid, Wellington could be quite flat. You guys got nearly 600 but still lost. Good pitch there. And then you got Christchurch, now that could be challenging if it's cold. But that's quite flat there as well. It will be an interesting dynamic who is fit enough for playing in the XI,’’ he concluded.
