News Desk: Bangladesh pacer Taskin Ahmed said on Wednesday that he takes inspiration from former captain Mashrafe Bin Murtaza to overcome the injuries.
Former Bangladesh pacer and country’s second highest wicket taker in one-day internationals, Mashrafe, suffered injuries on several occasions during his career but subsequently conquered it and returned to the field.
Likewise his senior fellow, Taskin also suffered from numerous strains in his eight-year international career and eventually recovered.
The 27-year-old sustained his last injury on his shoulder during their Test series against South Africa at their den that ruled him out of the recently concluded home series against Sri Lanka along with the forthcoming two-match Test series against the West Indies, starting on June 16.
However, after undergoing a month-long rehabilitation programme, Taskin eventually started bowling on Tuesday.
‘Mashrafe Bhai is our biggest example. He also fought with many injuries. All these inspire us as a fast bowler,’ said Taskin after a training session at the Bangladesh Cricket Academy Ground in Mirpur on Wednesday.
‘We must suffer from injuries and will come back as well.’
