Bangladesh pacer Taskin Ahmed has made a comeback to the Test side for the forthcoming one-off encounter against Afghanistan at home. Taskin was left out of the national side in the recently concluded World Cup where Bangladesh finished eighth on the ten-team table.
The 24-year-old has been included in the squad to replace the injured Mustafizur Rahman. Taskin last made an appearance in the longest format of the game two years ago and has only played 5 Tests thus far throughout his career.
“Taskin had originally been picked for Bangladesh's last Test assignment, against New Zealand in February-March this year, but an ankle injury ruled him out of the series. He has since roared back into contention following an impressive show in Dr. K Thimmappiah Memorial Tournament in Bengaluru,” the Bangladesh chief selector claimed.
