Taskin visited South Africa last March. This pacer made a big contribution to the team to win the ODI series. He was also selected as the player of the series. However, in the middle of the tour, Taskin was injured again. As a result, he returned to the country leaving the tour unfinished.
The right-arm pacer missed the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka at home and the two-match Test series against the West Indies due to injuries sustained during the tour of South Africa. However, the Bangladesh cricket team are hopeful of getting Taskin in a limited-overs series on the Caribbean island.
The 27-year-old fast bowler will board a flight to the West Indies on June 24. According to selector Bashar, Taskin has been bowling without any problems for the last two days and now he has no injuries.
Bashar said, “Taskin is completely okay now. There was a little bit of worry. But he bowled today and tomorrow in a way that no worries exist. He’ll fly to West Indies on June 24. According to doctors and his physical health of himself, he’s recovered from all sides.”
The two-match T20I series between Bangladesh and West Indies will be on July 2 and 3. While the three-match ODI series will be played on July 10, 13 and 16 respectively.
