atch, Sylhet Sixers’ mentor Waqar Younus was seen happy as his team finally broke the losing streak. Seeing him, Chittagong Vikings pacer Taskin Ahmed ran to the former Pakistani pacer.
Time is not going well for Taskin. Though he got 13 wickets in the tournament, his economy of 9.61 tells everything about his current performance. Taskin discussed his problems with Waqar and later the young seamer revealed his conversation to a reporter.
Waqar said to Taskin: “I am seeing you from 2015. You played well in the last 2 years. This year you are not having a good time. What is the problem?
In reply, Taskin said: “I changed my grip when I was having a bad time in the South Africa series. Then Waqar said not to change much and the way I became Taskin, bowling at 145 km, I should stick to that and work hard on that.”
When asked did Waqar’s words motivated him, Taskin said: “To be honest, there is not much difference between local and foreign coach’s words. They all are greatest. They have so much experience that if they share even a bit, it might help us. He played a lot of matches, took a lot of wickets. He is the king of reverse swing. He also said to me that if he could have seen me in the nets, then it would have been more better.”
