    But Taskin also has a personal goal, to become the top wicket-taker in the BPL. The star wants to reciprocate the confidence that the team has placed in him.
    Taskin said, "I will play for Sylhet this year, it is very exciting. Our team is balanced. Everyone will pray that we can play well as a team and take the team to the final. I am very optimistic. Everyone on the team is thrilled. I hope I will respect the team inshaAllah."
    Before the players draft, Sylhet chose Taskin from the list of stars. So the bowler has no problem understanding that he has more responsibility towards the team.
    "It's more of a responsibility," he said. "But I will try to enjoy the pressure inshaAllah. Every year there is an opportunity. My goal will be to give the best. I want to be right in the process. I want to be among the top wicket hunters. But I want to keep the process that I always follow."
    "I want to keep the basics right, I don't want to make any compromise."
    Taskin, did not get a chance to play limited overs cricket before the BPL. After playing Tests in New Zealand, he had to return home in preparation for the shortest format. However, the pacer is determined to adapt to the T20 from the test.
    He says, "We have to adapt anyway. It is the responsibility of a professional cricketer. It can't be an excuse that I did bad because I couldn't adapt.
    "It is my responsibility to adapt quickly to give the team its best and contribute to the victory."
