“To be truthful, Cricket World Cup 2019 is my precedence because it is my dream,” Taskin said. “I don’t know what will happen after waking up tomorrow morning. I am not thinking very far. The importance is to be 100% fit and get a chance in the World Cup squad. I am in the squad who played the 2015 Cricket World Cup and still I feel good recalling those memories.”

Following the injury, Taskin was directed three weeks of rest to recover fully while a restoration program was also put in place.

“I will have the second running session today and I hope to bowl slowly if everything runs easily,” he noted. “The strength of running is growing and so far I am pain free. I will start bowling from this month as that is the strategy of the physio team working with me.

“According to our plan, I will return back to good cricket during the super-league phase of the ongoing Dhaka Premier League. I may start (bowling) before if the progress seems good. Whatever happens, I’m trying to start after fully final the rehab.”

The 23-year-old said admired the board and the team management for testing his progress and keeping in touch following the injury. “Actually, the board officials have been interactive with me after the injury,” he said. “They often follow up… how much I progress, what is the current status etc. These things stimulate me even more. Our team’s skipper and senior Teammates also keep in my touch. Any injured player will get inspired with such treatments.”
