Taskin seemed the more experienced guy: Rabbi
Among the three pacemen playing for Bangladesh in the ongoing Test at Basin Reserve in Wellington, Kamrul Islam Rabbi is the most experienced guy. Because whereas it is his third Test match, the other two pacers — Taskin Ahmed and Subashis Roy have only made their debut in this match.
However, in the official press conference post the day’s play, Rabbi admitted that he was feeling like less experienced as compared to Taskin because the later has been playing in the international level for more time than he. Since making his debut in 2014 against India, Taskin has so far played 23 ODIs and 14 T20Is.
“Of the pacers played today… we have been playing together in domestic circuit for quite a long time. We have played first class cricket, premier league cricket. And Taskin has been playing international cricket for some time as well. He has played more matches than me. So I was feeling like he was the more experienced player,” said Rabbi.
He also added, “Subashis too played extremely well. He wasn’t feeling pressure or had any nervousness at all. My plan was to pitch the ball in the right area.”
Subashis was wicketless on Saturday, but was economic and gave away only 46 runs in 16 overs. Rabbi took two wickets at expense of 53 runs by bowling 13 overs. On the other hand, Taskin cost 79 runs in 15 overs to pick up his first Test wicket.
