Bangladesh can breathe a sigh of relief ahead of their white-ball series against the West Indies, as injured pace bowlers Taskin Ahmed and Shoriful Islam have begun bowling in preparation for the three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty-20 Internationals (T20Is) that will follow the two-match Test series. Here in this article, we have talked about Taskin and Shoriful make a comeback after their injury.

They were both ruled out of the Test series against the West Indies owing to injury, but team management decided to accommodate them for the white-ball assignment.

Shoriful, who was ruled out of the West Indies Test series after hurting his wrist against Sri Lanka on the fourth day of the first Test in Chattogram, began bowling at the BCB indoor facility on Saturday.

“I resumed bowling today and bowled six overs at sixty to seventy percent effort,” Shoriful said after finishing his first day in the nets since his injury.

“Hopefully in a week or so,” he continued, “I’ll be able to bowl at full rhythm.” “While Shoriful’s training began lately, Taskin’s preparation began on June 1 and he now appears to be close to achieving his full rhythm.

Taskin missed the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka and the West Indies because he was undergoing therapy for a shoulder injury he acquired during the tour of South Africa.

“I’m bowling four overs one day and eight overs the next,” Taskin said. “I’m following the physio’s instructions to be ready for the white-ball series.” I’m not in any discomfort right now, and I’m hoping to go back into full swing before the West Indies trip,” he stated.

Taskin is anticipated to be completely healthy before the tourist flight on June 23, therefore team management is likely to include him in the T20Is.

“We said that Taskin’s selection in the T20s is subject to fitness when we announced the team, and if he is fit, he will be included in the T20s as well,” BCB head selector Minhajul Abedin told Cricbuzz.

The first Test will be held in Antigua from June 16 to 20, followed by the second Test in St Lucia from June 24-28.

The first two Twenty20 Internationals will be played in Dominica on July 2 and 3, with the third in Guyana on July 7.

The three One-Day Internationals are also set to take place in Guyana on July 10, 13, and 16.
