Taskin’s goal now is one – to elevate himself. He is working harder towards this goal. The pacer of Bangladesh thinks that the opportunity to play in IPL will come again if he can do consistently well and take himself to a higher level.

Taskin is the highest wicket-taker with six wickets in a three-match ODI series in South Africa. In the first match of the Test series in Durban, Bangladesh lost by a big margin but the Bangladesh fast bowler bowled well. Did not get any wicket in the first innings. However, in the second innings, he bowled 11 overs and took 2 wickets. Injured in Durban and dropped out of the series. He spoke about Bangladesh’s tour of South Africa, his IPL dream and many more before catching the country’s flight due to injury.

During Bangladesh’s ODI series, Taskin got a chance to get a chance in an IPL team. But Taskin did not respond to that opportunity to play for the country. However, he wants to play in the IPL one day. On the subject, Taskin said, “Everyone’s dream is to play in the IPL as a player. I also want it very much. ‘ But there is more to it than meets the eye. The big thing, Taskin goes on to say, ‘My mother’s big dream is that once I play in the IPL, I want to too. I can play if I have Riji. ‘

Asked why he didn’t take the opportunity this time, Taskin said: “It was impossible in the middle of the series. I am a Test team player. Personally I also enjoy the test very much. Since it was in the middle of the series, there was nothing to do. If you are lucky, it will happen again. Because, I got a chance in IPL after playing the game of the country. So I hope to get the opportunity in the future.

There was a time, borrowed by Taskin. Although there was speed, there was a problem with the line and length. That Taskin is very tidy now. He is also bowling well against big teams. How did Taskin change himself? Listen to his voice, ‘I have not changed myself much, I have changed some process. I have looked at discipline and process. I tried to do everything a little more accurately. ‘Taskin then said of his goal, ‘The dream is too big, too big. I want to play in a better place, I want to do better. Archie is running after fulfilling his dream. I am trying to correct the mistakes so that I can be sharper. The main goal is to do better in the future. Since there is a desire to be something good in the world, we have to work harder. ‘

Taskin then spoke of the mystery of winning the ODI series on their soil against South Africa. ‘We all believed we could win. But Jitabai did not have such confidence. Our belief in victory was born. Because we’ve lost them before. But I never won on their soil. That was the biggest challenge for us. After coming to South Africa, our coaches, captains, management — everyone said that we can beat this team. We have that ability and everyone has played very well. ‘Not too long ago, Bangladesh was a spin-dependent team. Now the pacers also play a big role in helping Bangladesh win the match, the latest example being the ODI series against South Africa. Taskin was instrumental in helping Bangladesh win the third ODI of the series with 5 wickets for 35 runs. He won the best player award of that match. Also won the series-best award.

Taskin also spoke about the secret of making Bangladesh fast bowlers so good. “The bond between our seven or eight fast bowlers is very good,” he said. One helps the other very much. We are all like brothers. We talk to each other all the time. Even after Phiz went to play in the IPL, we talked to him regularly. Sujan (Khaled Mahmood) Sir has helped us a lot in building this bond and keeping the relationship good. ‘
