Speaking of Bangladesh’s bowling attack, he is very happy with the bowlers. He would like to make bowling pairs and develop the personal games of Taskin, Mustafizur Rahman and Mehedi Hasan Miraz.
“There’s a lot of talented cricketers around. Young Taskin (Ahmed) and Mehedi (Hasan) are there. Shafiul (Islam) and Rubel (Hossain) are still around. The captain (Mashrafe Mortaza) has obviously just retired from T20s but he’s still a very good bowler. And young Mustafizur (Rahman). If he and Taskin can build up a relationship in 10 years, work together in pairs as two seamers, and if Mehedi can come along and join them, it will be great. They know what they have to do and are working towards it and also building their own personal game,” said Walsh in an interview to ICC.
According to the former West Indian legend, Taskin has the potential of being an express bowler. He would go through process and improve his game and skills.
“It is tough. It’s not a small task but I think we have the ability – Taskin is one such guy who has the potential and the possibility of doing that. It’s just work in progress with him, we have to see how we can best develop him and his skills,” he said.
Taskin has played 27 ODIs for Bangladesh and picked 41 wickets at 27.09. He has already shown his potentials. It’s just the time that will tell whether he can be an express bowler or not.
