Taskin Ahmed Biography
By the time he had made his ODI debut at 19, Taskin Ahmed was already a big name, thanks to his stupendous performance for Bangladesh Under-19s against England in 2012. For a country that has almost never produced a tearaway fast bowler, young Taskin brought a gust of fresh air and gave hopes to the hearts of millions of fans.
Taskin generates deceptive pace and substantial bounce, thanks to his tall frame, broad shoulders, and a rhythmic run-up that can easily be called a connoisseur’s delight. He was a sensation the moment he arrived, becoming the first Bangladesh bowler to take a five-for on ODI debut, beating the Indians by pace and surprising them with the extra bounce.
Unfortunately, persistent injuries have kept Taskin away from a long international run. Once he sorts that out, however, exciting days lie ahead of Bangladesh cricket.
