Cricket is part of life, but not everything: Taskin
In the last few days, pacer Taskin Ahmed has been in the spotlight after he tied the knot with his girlfriend just after arriving home from South Africa.
The 22 year old pacer who will play for Chittagong Vikings in the fifth edition of BPL is now already busy in the training session. At the Sylhet International Stadium after the practice session, reporters had a lot of questions in their hand and Taskin didn’t fail to answer.
“When I was fielding well in the practice session, the team mates were doing fun with me. They said everything is going well after the marriage. Its good if its really true. To be honest, I am very happy that I married Sayeda, because we were in a relationship of 7 years. I have relation with her when I didn’t even become Taskin Ahmed. I was in class 10 when our relationship began. All in all, I am happy, my parents are happy too,” Taskin said.
When asked what is the reason behind this sudden marriage, he said: “The reason behind this sudden marriage is Mom and Dad wanted me to get married in this home, because we will shift to new apartment soon.”
After they tied the knot, the social media have been involved in some talking and at some stage, the fans also criticized Taskin’s wife. Taskin informed his wife is not worried about this things: “She is not annoyed about facebook. Many people use facebook, among them many belong from good family while many belong from bad. They can wrote many bad things. That’s why we don’t care about what people write.”
Taskin added: “My parents wanted me to get married early. Today or tomorrow, I have to get married anyway, that’s why I got married the day I came home and one more thing, I performed bad in the series, that’s why I should not get married? Does it make any sense? Cricket is part of my life, but not everything.”
