I want to become world’s best bowler, says a confident Taskin

Bangladesh right-arm seamer Taskin Ahmed reiterated his dream of becoming the best bowler in the world.

His optimism ahead of Bangladesh’ tour of South Africa starting with an ODI on March 18.

The pacer is currently at 91 in the Test bowlers’ ranking and 60 in ODIs and 84 in T20Is.

In his last 10 bowling innings in international cricket, Taskin bagged only 12 wickets with the best of taking three for 113 in a Test against New Zealand in Mount Maunganui.

“I have a big dream— I want to become the number one bowler in the world,” Taskin said on Thursday during a practice session at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. “I always try to focus on my process. Whatever I do in the field, I want to keep my process intact.”

During the early days of the Coronavirus pandemic, when most of the cricketers were stuck at home, Taskin worked hard on his fitness. He worked alone at sand-field near his home and he also worked with his trainer in an empty gym which was open only for him.

Bangladesh cricketers, including Taskin, are due to leave for South Africa on March 12. They will have a weeklong practice camp at Johannesburg ahead of the series.
