Selectors might be tempted to bring Taskin into the mix as a reactive strategy. Just worried the move might be too early for the guy-almost like Abul Hasan.
Taskin has played only 10 first class matches with a haul of 24. Its not just the lack of experience, also worry whether he is physically ready for the job. Knowing the player he is, he will go all out. We all know our history with injuries with pace bowlers. Not one person has been able to be injury free for a stretch of games. A long term injury early in the career could be a disaster. Rather have him play another couple of seasons of First Class, A Team Tours, time at the academy and then bring him in.
Now in comparison Zimbawean bowlers may not have much test experience, but they have a lot of first class experience. They have a better understanding of the longer version and are much fitter. Masakadza has close to 200 fc scalps, Mpofu 207, Meth 125, Jarvis 115, Vitori 64. Most of them have very good averages of around 20.
I think we have a very good find in Robiul Islam. He might be able to do well in all formats. We have to get Nazmul fit. Will be interesting to see how Saajidul plays. Shafiul and Rubel need to play more, even A Team might do them good. Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Al Amin Hossain, Abu Jayed, Kazi Kamrul Islam have all performed well in domestic cricket last couple of seasons. Prefer to see one of them as opposed to going on and on with Shahadat Hossain.
