I have said this before and I will say it again, we have a star in our hands. This is the next Mashrafe mark my words. He is tall, furiously fast and will only get better and he takes wickets. I can't wait to see him play for our national team.

well lets nurture him properly then. wasn't he give a shot in a BCB XI game and got smashed? obviously not ready for senior international cricket yet but any talent in the pace bowling ranks must be dealt with in the best way to develop them.

Our another BC Over hyped Nazmul can only dream of bowling a bouncer that would go over keepers head.... So Taskin's hype is far more justified...

That was clearly some awkward bounce brought about by the pitch. Nonetheless he does look like he has some real pace in him. Looking forward to seeing more good performances from him.

When the pitch creates an awkward bounce with Nazmul bowling, it usually bounces ten times before keeper gets it. Awkward bounce for Taskin ends up over keepers head, thats the only difference... :D

August 16, 2012, 06:50 PM
good pace, can get good bounce due to his height. he's got potential, real potential, let's hope he's nurtured because in a few years we could have rubel, abul and taskin to choose from when it comes to pace, and taskin looks to get the most bounce out of these guys and for me that's a huge weaopn.

I'm not sold on Abul...he did have one of the greatest Youth ODI careers in the history of the game, but he's been quite ordinary in the handful of T20 matches he's played. But of course T20 is a horrible place to judge anyone's game.

Gowza
August 16, 2012, 07:37 PM
yup, abul has a lot to prove, no performance no selection. can't just be selected purely because he has pace, needs to be able to back-up with performances to hold his spot.

August 16, 2012, 08:16 PM
Reminds me of Mashrafe because of the heart and look, reminds me of Dale steyn because of close to body action and late ripping off action, he is just 16, if Abul can manage a 10 mph jump from his u-19 days to national team days then I see this kid as being the fastest bowler in Bangladesh.

with his pace and height i think about the WI greats, more recently steven finn is in a similar mould with pace, height and bounce, alan donald, courtney walsh the list could go on. he has the attributes to be a really good fast bowler.

Albeit T20 is the worst place to judge any player. He could still be a good ODI bowler, he could still be a good Test bowler. So far he's a crappy T20 bowler. But thats all we know.

Anyone know just how tall Taskin is? He seems to be no taller than 6-1 or around there.

August 16, 2012, 09:57 PM
If he is really 16, he will get taller and be faster in coming days.

But I would like to see Ian Pont's analysis on how effective his action is, and whether it will injure him or not.

Thought he was 16 when we first heard of him which would have been about a year ago I think so reckon he'd be at least 17, Facebook profile is more likely to be correct I'd think....

In terms of height and bounce that's all, those traits are more rare these days in international cricket, never underestimate bounce as a weapon it's what made a lot of past fast bowlers successful. Of course taskin is just at his beginning, hopefully he develops well.

I have seen Taskin bowl during the U-19 WC match against SL.
He has got good pace and he is aggressive. Surely very raw at the moment and loose control when tries to bowl fast. Yes, in his run-up, attitude, there is a shadow of Mashrafee in him. Definitely a prospect for the future and no doubt he will play for Bangladesh.

Equinox
August 19, 2012, 11:03 AM
I think pace-wise this is probably the best bunch we've ever had. Taskin, Dewan, Jayed all seem like they have what it takes to play NT cricket at some point in the future while Shoummo's more than handy with the ball too. Dollar, Rubel and Shuvashish was good too but I think the current bunch has them beat based on potential alone.

Gowza
August 19, 2012, 06:38 PM
a pace academy is essential, BD does have fast bowling talent, can't say there isn't potential there i mean mash, shahadat, rubel, shafiul, subashis, sajidul, nazmul, abul, babu, dolar, jayed, t.jubair, taskin etc. talent is there, maybe there isn't as much talent as in other countries but there is enough there to get some solid pacers, they need to be coached properly though.

August 21, 2012, 05:09 AM
it's very hard not to blame Taskin. Nasum, mosaddek, Al Amin, Naeem in total went for 131 runs.

on average the four bowlers above gave away 32.75, Taskin gave double the average 66 (9.2).

In honesty, yes he gave the game away, but hopefully will improve.

cricket_king
August 21, 2012, 05:28 AM
Right, and we were totally going to win this game by restricting the opposition. We scored 217 for crying out loud! Look at the wickets column - who's got the most? That was the key to winning this match, not the economy rates.

lets see, 4 bowlers = 131 conceded.

Plus say Taskin scored the av: 40 (as he is pacer)

131+40 = (171) + 20 (Dewan Sabbir) = 191

191 + Extras (3) = 194

BD Total 217 - 194 = BD win by 23 runs.

Now if Taskin gave away say 50 runs BD still will win by 13 runs

if he gave away 60 runs BD would win by 3 runs.

When you have a small target to defend - that is what happens. The batsmen get emboldened and even your best bowler is in for some stick. All of the above numbers are really irrelevant. What is relevant is the fact that at the end of over 30 we were 129/2. With the loss of only two wickets, it is par for the course to double your 30 over score at least. The BD score should have been in excess of 250. At the end of over 40, we were 169/2. In the next 10 overs our run rate was only 4.8.

New Zealand Under-19s 198 (50 ov); Afghanistan Under-19s 190/9 (50 ov)

New Zealand bowlers bowled really well to defend a target of 198. I agree with what you say, we were in good position to score 240+ easily. but at times, you need to know whether your bowlers are capable of winning a match for the team by bowling well given a small target.

we play Pakistan or West Indies for 6th place play off, I hope we do well and both batting and bowling units should show character.

I wonder why we would think Pakistan couldnt flay Taskin or any other attack at the final overs.. I mean wheh Pakistan had wickets, they would go after any bowlers.. Rather I would blame the captain for not giving better instructions to Taskin. Taskin did take wickets and without seeing how he bowled, we can't really comment whether he was bowling his line/length wrong or Pakistan batsmen were simply lucky or superb in their picking the balls.. It very well could be that the BD captain didnt place the fielders right or there were catch misses.. who knows? But blaming Taskin aint gonna help him.. this experience of getting bashed with. Remember Mashrafees 21 over against ZIM?

I'm optimistic about him...he might not be ready for limited overs cricket just yet...he seems to get hit for sixes way too much, but seems to follow up well but getting wickets after being smacked (3x in this tourney). His ODI strike rate is good but not great. If he is a better Test bowler, than I don't mind letting him cut his teeth at Test level given that NONE of our pacers has a strike rate under 100 in that format. That is piss poor...Chamu Chibabha would be ashamed.

Also you can't conclude he can't bowl with an old ball because in ODIs the oldest a ball will be is 25 overs old, not old enough for reverse and not new enough to generate bounce or prodigious swing. He's done well enough in this tournament to keep his reputation intact, if not exactly enhanced.

Reason for his own thread:

- He is leading wicket taker of U-19 WC tournament for BD and next Abul!
- He will also a probable pace spearhead who might be the ideal solution as Mash replacement and has opportunity to become number #1 pacer of BD in 2020 (based on the way Abuls are coming and going)
- He will be superstar soon after getting drafted to A or National team and then will perform good in 1 or 2 month in near future which will be memorable for development team for that particular year
- He has opportunity to transition to acting career has he has "boody" and "height" to replace Shahadat Shahrukh Khan as number # 1 in "Cricket hero went zero then cinema hiro" criteria

Anam should have used Taskin/dewan in the middle overs somewhere. he lost the plot there. and, why on the earth we were playing so many spinners in aus pitch? all the matches i have seen in tv have green top. bd cricket pundit really needs t think about palying 3 pacers in age group cricket, no matter where they are playing - we need to encourage young generation to bowl fast. go bd go

[বাংলা]মাশরাফি ভাই, মরনে মরকেলের মতো ফাস্ট বোলার হতে চাই
[/বাংলা]

[বাংলা]কালের কণ্ঠ স্পোর্টস : প্রথমবারের মতো জাতীয় দলে ডাক পেলেন। নিশ্চয়ই খুব খুশি?
তাসকিন আহমেদ : ভাষায় প্রকাশ করার মতো না। জাতীয় দলে খেলার স্বপ্ন তো সেই ছোটবেলা থেকে। সেই স্বপ্নপূরণের খুব কাছাকাছি চলে এলাম। কী যে ভালো লাগছে তাই!
প্রশ্ন : ভেবেছিলেন, এত তাড়াতাড়ি সুযোগ পাবেন?
তাসকিন : সত্যি বলতে কী, না। আমার কাছে এটি ছিল বিশাল এক চমক। ভালো খেলতে থাকলে একদিন না একদিন সুযোগ আসবে- সেটি জানতাম। তা যে এই ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের বিপক্ষে সিরিজেই হবে, ভাবিনি।
প্রশ্ন : গত কিছুদিন ধরে সব জায়গাতেই তো ধারাবাহিকভাবে ভালো করছিলেন। এর পরও টার্নিং পয়েন্ট বলবেন কোনটিকে?
তাসকিন : (একটু ভেবে) আমার মনে হয় অনূর্ধ্ব-১৯ বিশ্বকাপ। সেখানে প্রতি ম্যাচেই আমি দু-তিনটি করে উইকেট পেয়েছিলাম। লাইন-লেন্থ ঠিক থাকায় ইকোনমিটাও ছিল খুব ভালো। এই জায়গাতেই আমি জোর দিই বেশি। যদি লাইন-লেন্থ ঠিক থাকে, তাহলে ব্যাটসম্যানরা আমাকে এমনিতেই উইকেট দিয়ে যাবে। আর আমার বলে পেসও তো কম না।
প্রশ্ন : ক্রিকেটার হওয়ার গল্পটা একটু বলুন।
তাসকিন : আমার এক বন্ধু ছিল কাইয়ুব। ও আমাকে সব সময় বলত, তোর ফাস্ট বোলিং অ্যাকশন খুব ভালো। যখন ক্লাস সেভেনে পড়ি, তখন আবাহনী মাঠে ডিসকভারি ক্রিকেট একাডেমীতে ভর্তি হই মূলত ওরই আগ্রহে। কিছুদিনের মধ্যে দেখা গেল, ক্রিকেট আমার কাছে নেশা হয়ে গেল। সেখানে সপ্তাহে ছোটদের দুই দিন, বড়দের তিন দিন অনুশীলন ছিল। আমি পাঁচ দিনই যেতাম। এরপর অনূর্ধ্ব-১৫, অনূর্ধ্ব-১৭ জাতীয় দলে খেললাম। পেস বোলিং ফাউন্ডেশনের সেরা ১০-এ ঢুকলাম। এই তো, এভাবে ক্রিকেটই আমার জীবনের সব হয়ে উঠল।
প্রশ্ন : বাসা থেকে বকুনি খাননি?
তাসকিন : শুরুর দিকে বাবা এটিকে খুব ভালো চোখে দেখেননি। কিন্তু যখন উনি আমার খেলা দেখলেন, কোচের সঙ্গে কথা বললেন, এরপর আর কোনো সমস্যা হয়নি। বরং উৎসাহই দিয়েছেন সব সময়। এই তো এখনো আমার খেলা যেখানেই থাকে, বাবা ঠিক মাঠে চলে আসেন।
প্রশ্ন : প্রিয় ক্রিকেটার কে?

The future of our pace bowling looks bleak, he is our U19 pace spearhead and goes unsold in BPL auction while tons of nobody players from both here and abroad gets a team. Pathetic stuff. There should be a quota in every BPL team to include national U19 team players. I rather see these guys playing then the same old Nazimuddins.

December 20, 2012, 08:23 AM
BPL is not going to benefit our cricket as long as guys like Brad Hodge come become captain, open the bowling, open the batting. This is the ideal tournament to test the mettle of our young upcoming players. Not picking Taskin shows the knowledge of the selection committee of the franchises. I guess they are more interested in entertainment, fame, rather than helping develop the game. I dont know whether BCB is planning to change any rule, but it will be good for the game if we could reduce the number of foreigners per team by 1 like its done in IPL and SLPL. Yes, foreigners make it more interesting, but it doesnt help our cricket

BCB should make a special quoata clause like each team must include atleast one U-21 pace bowlers. If they have a clause to include one foreign player from associate country, they can include a clause like that to force the franchises to give young local pacers a team and some assurance that their skills are in need...

I'm looking forward to watching Tajin in action in the BPL. He's pacy and bowls with a lot of aggression and desire. Quality coaching and sporting pitches can easily make him one of the most intimidating fast-mediums (135-140) or beyond (140+) we've had to date.

I'd love to see how comes back from being hit and fights being rattled by aggressive batsmen trying to get on top of him in competitive, high pressure cricket. BPL would be a great place to get a glimpse of that.

In terms of speed, he must be really up there! But remember guys, he is only 17. Although I want to see him play, we should be cautious.......

Tanvir, have you seen him? Can you describe his bowling style?

tanvir_nus
January 27, 2013, 09:00 PM
he is over 6 feet, gets bounce from the wicket because of his height and tall arm, late ripping action... one of the best parts is his front foot does not collapse and drags his second foot while delivering suggesting he can go so much faster when he does mature... i am not an expert but looks like a smooth but effective action to me, he is aggressive as well... and the hunger for pace is there... everything suggestive of the best prospect in fast bowling for years in bangladesh... but he has to be handled very well... i have said this before, he has to be given the time to mature.

We Bangladeshis don't get this seriously, and we give breaks to early to youngsters. The thing is a bowler is learning, maturing everyday. He will learn more about his body and swinging as time goes by, giving him an early break may put a dent to that, unless he is a fast learner. We don't know how he is as a person.

Yah, very excited about seeing him.

still needs work on line and length but he gets some nice movement after the bounce, can't tell if it's off the seam of if he's rolling his fingers though. obviously he's capable of getting bounce to, and we already know he has good pace.

I don't think he's much suited for limited overs cricket. His econ rate in limited overs games is way too high.

I think he could settle into Test cricket if he understands the basics. If he can consistently make the batsman play, move it just a little through the air or off the seam, he can get wickets. Of course his pace and bounce will help.

With Mash, Rubel, and Nazmul we have a very decent ODI pace attack. He is needed in Tests where we might as well be opening with Alamgir Kabir and Khaled Mahmud with Aftab Ahmed at first change.

He doesn't need meat, except to eat of course. Does Steyn look like the Terminator? Meat may actually make him more injury prone if he can't manage that extra mass well on his frame. As long as he bowls well, stays injury free, thats all he needs. He doesn't even need extreme pace...though that would be great to see.

I am highly impressed with Taskin. He should be handled carefully unlike Mash and make sure he doesn't fall into injuries since he is only 17 (or 19). Has smooth action and looks pacy. Can easily cross 138kph (at times 140) in english/south african pitches since Tait has been clocking around 140 in dhaka pitches.Playing alongside Shaun Tait will definitely help him alot.

Isn't that why Mash broke down?

You don't have to be a Hulk Hogan but you do need to start building muscle if you are to be successful as a pace bowler and stay somewhat injury free. Though Mash was not skinny but I think it's the lack of fitness that caused his downfall.

The difference in physical built and the pace of pace bowlers between ours and the ones from Eng, Ozzy, NZ and SA is very apparent at the U-19 level.

His max I saw was 82MPH in one of his overs. With proper growing up and strength exercise he can definitely add an extra yard of pace. Plus that thing with his wrist before release. I don't know if that helps. He was definitely not getting any extra swing from it.

tanvir_nus
February 14, 2013, 10:24 PM
Guys, for a 17 year bowling at 83 miles per hour consistently in Bangladeshi conditions if you think that is not impressive then I don't know what is. Even Shoaib at that age and in this condition wouldn't reach that speed. He has been the paciest Bangladeshi in the competition and that speaks volumes itself.

His action is so good, I can't even begin to contemplate the future. I have said this before, he reminds me so much of our Mashrafe and Dale Steyn. He has a late jerk and a late ripping off action like Dale Steyn and he has the heart and look of Mashrafe. If he is not the next Mashrafe then we have a star in the making that is going to be even better than Mashrafe.

I will let Ian Pont talk about his action more but what impresses me limitless is that his front foot does not collapse and is a straight line which means as the year goes by and he gains strength he can use his upper body more and create more pace, he drags his right foot on the point of delivery ( I have noticed though it's not on a consistent basis, probably means he is trying to bowl too fast at times and runs in too hard) as you can see from all the fast bowlers this is very important to bowling fast because dragging right foot gives a catapult like reaction when releasing the ball. I could go on and on, and oh yeah that wrist, that gives him extra yards for sure. If you are talking about swinging, then just look at the seam position when he releases. It's quite exemplary. He is born with it. He has it in him.

That being said, I really hope there is a voice out there for him in BCB. He should be taken care of and encouraged and given a proper break when he is ready. Let him learn now. Let him get better. I am going to say this again and again, he might be the next big thing in Bangladeshi Cricket so let's please preserve him. A talent like this comes once every 10 years.

134.4 km = 83.5 mph was the quickest I saw.

But hopefully that was due to speed guns being a bit slow because that Shaun Tait bullet that Sabbir straight drove for 6 was only clocked at 138, IIRC. That being said, bowlers, at least Bangladeshi bowlers don't gain much pace from their U-19 days. Nazmul was bowling 78 mph as a 16 year old, and he's at the same pace now. Same with every other bowler we've ever had. Tazzy, therefore, doesn't look like he will ever be express, but hopefully he can bowl at 85 mph and up on a consistent basis. But even at his current pace of 80-82 mph, if he can move the ball off the seam and keep a tight line outside off, he will be amongst the wickets even without any swing through the air. If he can get movement, then he will be lethal provided he keeps it in the channel 80% of the time.

His action is pretty, and unlike Ishant or Rajib, his front knee is locked which will retain his pace and bounce. He beat several batsmen a fair amount and since he wasn't moving the ball or getting awkward bounce, he must have been bowling faster than the guns indicated.

The negatives:

Front arm too far across. Needs to pull back a bit and use it to pull his body forward on the point of delivery. See Brett Lee's action.

134.4 km = 83.5 mph was the quickest I saw.

But hopefully that was due to speed guns being a bit slow because that Shaun Tait bullet that Sabbir straight drove for 6 was only clocked at 138, IIRC. That being said, bowlers, at least Bangladeshi bowlers don't gain much pace from their U-19 days. Nazmul was bowling 78 mph as a 16 year old, and he's at the same pace now. Same with every other bowler we've ever had. Tazzy, therefore, doesn't look like he will ever be express, but hopefully he can bowl at 85 mph and up on a consistent basis. But even at his current pace of 80-82 mph, if he can move the ball off the seam and keep a tight line outside off, he will be amongst the wickets even without any swing through the air. If he can get movement, then he will be lethal provided he keeps it in the channel 80% of the time.

His action is pretty, and unlike Ishant or Rajib, his front knee is locked which will retain his pace and bounce. He beat several batsmen a fair amount and since he wasn't moving the ball or getting awkward bounce, he must have been bowling faster than the guns indicated.

I hope that the selectors pick him for the SL series, if only to play him in the tour match 3-day game.

Mind you, if the meter shows 135 kph in BPL, he can reach mid 140s in Aus, Eng conditions.

I think he can reach 140 on Bangladeshi guns, and that means 145 on English and Aussie guns. Every bowler bowls 5-10 k faster when in those countries. Ishant, Aamir all hit 150 in Australia. Shafiul clocked 145 in England (according to cricinfo).

Hahaha bhai, I am the most cautious person when it comes to him. I have seen too many failures and too many shooting stars fall flat of Bangladeshi cricket. But what I want to say is that he has the potential of being one of the greats. From the very first moment I saw him I knew we have a gem on our hands. It comes from the fact that he has a perfect action that he has developed instinctively (mind you at that age there is no one to coach you in Bangladesh on how to bowl very fast) and what's more impressive is the natural talent he possesses with that aggressiveness. I think we all agree that if Bangladesh wants to be a powerhouse in cricket we need fast bowlers, and after Mashrafe there has been one or two decent ones but none has impressed me as much Taskin has. And eventhough I might be seen as jumping guns but when Tamim and Shakib came they wanted to be one of the greats and look where they are now. It's too early which is why I have said repeatedly that BCB needs to protect him, let him play the U-19 world cup, give him a break 2 years from now but it will also be very hard to keep a talent like him on the sidelines. Here is what he had to say about his dreams....

প্রশ্ন : স্বপ্নের পরিধি কত বড়?
তাসকিন : অনেক। এখন বললে হয়তো একটু বাড়াবাড়ি শোনাবে। তবে আমি স্বপ্ন দেখি, একদিন মাশরাফি ভাই, সাকিব ভাই, তামিম ভাইয়ের মতো বিশ্বসেরা ক্রিকেটার হওয়ার। ছোটবেলায় ক্রিকেট নিয়ে অত মেতে থাকতাম দেখে বন্ধুরা আমাকে নিয়ে হাসাহাসি করত। আকাশে প্লেন উড়ে যেতে ভাবতাম, কখনো কি আমি তাতে চড়তে পারব! মাশরাফি ভাই, সাকিব ভাইদের টিভিতে দেখে থাকতাম হাঁ করে। এখন বন্ধুরা হাসাহাসি করে না, প্লেনেও চড়েছি আর মাশরাফি ভাইদের সঙ্গে অনুশীলন করব। তাহলে স্বপ্নের বাকিটা পূরণ হবে না কেন!

Protecting him, bringing him slowly.. yes.

Shelving him for two years?.... definitely NO. Its like death penalty to a young player.


You cannot make a cookie cutter method how soon to bringing a new talent... its depends on each individual... how quick they technically, physically and most of all mentally ready. Some talent can shine more under pressure, some need more time.

As Nana Bhai mentioned, he may benefit more just if he goes with the national team. Sometimes, that motivates a young player and he can find out what it would take for him to be successful in the highest level.

Exactly. He needs to be protected, but not overprotected.

I am not sure whether he should play for the national team yet. However, he could be taken with the team to gain valuable experience. He should be a permanent fixture of the A-team.

He clearly has better idea about how to attack the batsmen, compared to Abul or Rubel (of now). Taskin and Sajidul are the two pace bowlers who impressed me the most in this version of the BPL.

Agreed. A bowler has more opportunity to rectify himself than a batsman does who can play one bad shot or get one bad decision and it ends his innings and kills his average. A bowler will always have a come back ball or a come back spell. We also don't play nearly enough matches to "overuse" bowlers. I would blood him in the Test side immediately, and bench him for most ODIs since Rubel, Mashrafe, Nazmul, Shafiul, Abul are adequate. By the 2015 world cup, he would have a few ODI games under his belt and could be in the side for the world cup. He should continue to work with McInnes at the Academy simaltaneously.

Just saw Taskin`s interview uploaded by MoC bhai. Sounds like an intelligent confident young man. What impressed me most was his emphasis on hard work and taking care of his health. So, hopefully no smoking of any kinds for Taskin ;) Hope he follows a good dietary habit and early nights. Though, Mashrafe is probably not the best (descipline wise) but hope he can mentor the young lad. Mash is the only pacer in BD with an wealth of experience and skills.

Ideally, I would like to see Taskin beefing up -JUST a little. But, he is very young and still growing physically, mentally and emotionally. I woudn`t like to see him in the full national colours yet. Should concentrate on the upcoming U19 tours in England and the World Cup. More FC cricket next year. The best way to ease him into the top flight would be ODIs from the next year or so.

Would only make a slight difference. With a 20 man roster and only 4 weeks, how much focused 1-on-1 time would he have gotten? Not much. Besides, Pont would probably only give him some pointers on bowling in this specific T20 tournament. For real coaching/instruction Pont either has be hired as head/assistant coach or Taskin would have to travel out to UK to go through his academy for a few weeks. What little advice Pont could squeeze in a hectic BPL tournament, Taskin can just approach Pont on off days at the hotel (I'm assuming the teams are all staying in the same hotel). They are also facebook friends, so hopefully Tazzy will get in touch with Pont and work something out.

i'm sure Mr Pont implements his own training schedules and drills on the gladiators so even though taskin probably wouldn't have gotten too much 1-on-1 time with Ian, he still would have been put into a solid training program which he could have taken on board and learnt from for times when Ian isn't around.

We need a more comprehensive approach with regards to management.

Theres no point in letting Taskin hang around the academy or A team if he's ready now or if there isn't much for him to learn. He won't magically be turned into a Dale Steyn by staying outside the national team for another 2 years. That being said, he should be played as much as possible in tour matches, and Academy level since we don't play much cricket. Hope he doesn't break down like most pacers do.

of course, everything you say is true here is true. my only question mark with taskin is that despite a couple of good performances he's still largely inexperienced which means we haven't got a good sample size to find out if he's a mash or a shahadat. his talent should be undoubted.

[6 month old post]
I'm optimistic about him...he might not be ready for limited overs cricket just yet...he seems to get hit for sixes way too much, but seems to follow up well but getting wickets after being smacked (3x in this tourney). His ODI strike rate is good but not great. If he is a better Test bowler, than I don't mind letting him cut his teeth at Test level given that NONE of our pacers has a strike rate under 100 in that format. That is piss poor...Chamu Chibabha would be ashamed.

Also you can't conclude he can't bowl with an old ball because in ODIs the oldest a ball will be is 25 overs old, not old enough for reverse and not new enough to generate bounce or prodigious swing. He's done well enough in this tournament to keep his reputation intact, if not exactly enhanced.

Did that in the SF match against Charles "194" Coventry as well. He has knack of getting his revenge sooner than later.

This is such a tricky situation. If we go by how past fast bowlers did after getting international cap, you think maybe it's too early.

I hope selectors/management can figure out what is the best approach.

He's definitely won my heart. That delivery to Dilshan was a jaffer. It was the stuff of dreams. Not too long ago he was just warming the bench and if you told him he would bowl Dilshan in the 1st over of the BPL final, he would've laughed at you.

What I liked about him was the amount of deviation he can get. He's got a good action and most importantly he bowls intelligently. He can bowls yorkers too, something our pacers don't do often enough. I think he is our death over solution in ODIs. From a selfish point of view I want him to play for Bangladesh U-19s in their tour of England so I can get to see him live. But I think he should be in the Bangladesh squad so he can experience what it's like to play for the national team. Anamul Haque said being in the Asia Cup squad helped him acclimatise for the West Indies series. Taskin should be in the national team by 2014, he is that good.

Cheers for the vid. Saves me time having to go through various videos to see his wickets. 5 of his 8 wickets were bowled. As the commentator mentioned, it was good to see Alfonso Thomas acknowledge the delivery from Taskin.

Yes Taskin looked impressive. He looked intelligent as well. I have seen him bowling in 2 matches. Only problem I found is lack of pace. He was bowling around 130 and highest delivery was 134+

So far so good. He's definitely going to be served well by his smooth action. In his run-up there's no loss in speed while running in to the bowling stride which is very important in generating pace.

Now only if he goes through strength training and strengthen his knees and hamstrings. Some say at the point of release the pressure on the knees is almost 10 times more than usual, so no wonder all our pace bowlers suffer from knee injuries. He doesn't need to bulk up his upper body, just make it lean and strong with strong trunk muscle which will help him avoid back injuries.

He needs to be taken care off and it should start right now even though he is not in the SL squad.

if he's a good death bowler then he's worth drafting into the t20 and ODI team, we've been lacking a bowler capable of bowling at the death for quite awhile.

He got tonked more than a couple times just last August at U-19 world cup, prompting stern criticism. That said, he did decent in the death in the BPL. Our lack of pace firepower has me pining for him right now. I really hope he gets picked up for the BCL Final since he won't play the SL tour match.

He should play in the ZIM series. That would be a perfect litmus test.

Give the guy a break on his pace..HES 17!!!! and 134 at 17 is more than you can ask for! He will only get better and more confident after this Inshahallah! if he can bowl over one the best t20 batsmen in world with a in swinging ripper at 135 in tournament final, imagine what he can he do by the age of 20, 21.

BRAVO TASKIN PROUD OF U MY BOY! :flag: :notworthy: :flag:

Hey guys, I still think eventhough he is performing and we are getting a peek at how good he is, there is room for improvement. I think he can crank up his pace a whole lot yards faster. He needs the correct training to do so though. If you had read my post http://www.banglacricket.com/alochona/showpost.php?p=1655554&postcount=145 you would have seen the positives I brought out. There are so many positives. There are no negatives but there are ways he can make his action even better and turn into all time greats which is possible for him.

1. In his pre-delivery stride, his bowling arm is too high across. That makes him spend more time on his landing leg and not use most of his run-up speed. Again run-up speed should be controlled, too fast he will not be able to use any of it, too slow there won't be any energy build up anyways. He needs to start where brett-lee or shoaib start if he wants to crank up his speed even higher which he can because during his delivery stride he has got so many positives like braced front leg and wrist jerk to help him, mind you even shoaib or brett lee doesn't have such a perfect delivery stride.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-VO487RjsbBc/USRS2-HERdI/AAAAAAAAAD0/aWI6PPeVJGY/s972/pre-delivery+stride.jpg

2. I am not going to talk about delivery stride as it is nothing except exceptional but after his delivery he seems to be falling away which can be quite dangerous for his ankle. He needs to do alignment training. Again, he might be doing this to get swing and seam which he has got till now, but the breakaway action can cause inefficiency and put more stress on his front foot.

3. Lastly, as my previous post indicates, I feel he is not using his front arm as much as he should. By the time he is ready for release his front arm is already too far down, he could have used it to pull his body weight down and increase that propulsion force on that ball so much higher. If he can fix this he can get so much faster.

My last post about this front arm thing:

This kid is already becoming a gem of a bowler just imagine if he can correct a few things and on top of that get fitter and stronger and learn a thing or two about swinging and reverse swing bowling, he can become one of the greats. I reallly wish he can train with Ian on these issues or get a good bowling coach to analyse and rectify these few things. He has everything going for him and these small tweaks can really make him one of the best fast bowlers. I strongly believe so.

About his lace of pace, it's really funny.
1. He has been the paciest Bangladeshi, only Rubel comes close and I think (I can't prove) he has bowled faster than Rubel, atleast in terms of average speed. Rubel's fastest one I had seen was 134 k.

2. Talk about relative speed please, shaun tait being the fastest bowler atm played in BPL, how fast was he? His fastest was probably 144.

3. Don't forget the condition of fast bowling, somehow the speeds of everyone shown were lower than their actual speed shown elsewhere. I am guessing he is bowling at 140ks, we only have to wait on his actual speed when he travels to NZ/Aus.

4. He is only 17. He will get pacier, he is already generating so much thanks to his near-perfect action (see above) but he has the promise in him to generate so much more.

Since we are only talking about pace I thought I will mention these only. I will leave the part about his mental strength, bowling acumen, seam position, in-swingers and generating bounce capabilities.

Pace is good to have, but aggression is equally important. An aggressive bowler can put fear in the opposition even when bowling between 130-140. Taskin has the aggression of a fast bowler. The look he gives, how he celebrates, how he knocks down stumps, the bouncers he bowls, how he reacts when hit.
All that makes him very different from our other bowlers.

al Furqaan
February 20, 2013, 02:20 AM
I'm worried about the guns. I know Tait was only around 140...but both Oram was around 125 (his normal pace) and even Bopara was cranking it up to 128 or so. Based on that Taskin's real pace is a bit low...only 80-81 mph. Hopefully he was bowling within himself for control, which was surprisingly good in the BPL.

Zeeshan
February 20, 2013, 02:29 AM
I'd say Tanvir_nus is being too nit-pickety. But I would love to hear Ian Pont's view on it and in general how the coaches rectify the actions. For a bowler to bowl he must be first and foremost, like any batsman, be comfortable in his self, with his own preferable grip, and his own preference of action. You cannot just go on telling someone 'oh your feet is landing at this-degree angle, drag it back' as it will not necessarily be the tweak one's looking for.

Ian once wrote how a fast bowler must be willing to bowl fast for fast bowling. :p

I'd much rather prefer "the part about his mental strength, bowling acumen, seam position, in-swingers and generating bounce capabilities" than just bodily adjustments.

Taskin is still young and fragile. we should not over burden him. But surely we should let him taste the international flavor. That will help him to develop quicker..

February 20, 2013, 03:30 PM
Thats exactly why I said one days and not tests. Don't bowl him in tests yet as his body won't be able to take it but 10 overs in one days should be okay and a real learning experience for him.

Tiger Manc
February 20, 2013, 03:43 PM
I'm sure if he worked with a good bowling coach he can improve his speed, but it's still not bad for a 19 year old. Aside from Malinga, the SL pace bowlers aren't that fast and they still do a good job. What makes Taskin lethal is that he seems to have good control and can seem the ball.

He many not get chance because the board may think he needs more experience but we dont have any good pace options anyways .. we need to develop this guy for the team..
his front on medium pace action is what exactly we need to keep the bowl in good line and length which shahadat struggled over the years

February 22, 2013, 10:10 AM
He should be included in the preliminary team and may be in T20 and ODI team for final selction.

But I am not disapointed as eventually the Selectors have to select him eventually, there is no way ignoring him for too long.

I am not sure playing him in the BCL is such a good idea. He just finished playing the BPL and DPL is around the corner. He will be part of the Zimbabwe tour for sure and will play for Bangladesh in the next year's world cup. I still consider BCL as a non-competitive tournament. Well if he is playing, I hope the captain uses him in short busts. My only worry is his workload and risk of injury.

Bowl him in 4-5 over spells in Tests, and similar in ODIs. No point playing him and risking injuries in T20s, but I'm sure management has other ideas.
