Taskin Ahmed set to miss SA World Cup clash

With being sidelined from the match against India, Taskin Ahmed is set to miss Bangladesh’s World Cup 2023 match against South Africa on Tuesday, October 24 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Bangladesh.

Bangladesh have two victories out of four matches they’ve played in ICC World Cup 2023 so far. On this occasion, the Bangladesh side was concerned about the Bowler’s absence in the training session on October 22.

Let us see what happens today (in the practice session) but he looks doubtful for the next game against South Africa as he is yet to recover fully.”

But there is a high possibility that the player will be ready for the match against the Netherlands on October 28.

“Even if we don’t get him (Taskin) against South Africa, we are expecting him to be available when we start our campaign in Kolkata,”

Despite his ongoing recovery, his absence has an impact on the side. Taskin suffered a shoulder injury during the team’s tour of South Africa in 2022. While an operation was recommended at the time, the management chose a conservative approach in light of the T20 World Cup 2022.

But his shoulder injury became worse during the match against England when he approached Chandika for guidance in the training session. The head coach provided exercise for Taskin’s discomfort, preparing him for the match against New Zealand.

During the training session for the upcoming South African encounter, Taskin Ahmed was sidelined and focused on rehabilitation with physio Bayzidul Islam.

On the other hand, Shakib al Hasan who sustained a quad tear in the ongoing tournament is being monitored by Bangladesh and is expected to bowl for the first time after the injury. His performance during the training session will determine his presence in the playing 11 for the upcoming matches.

With Key players nursed for their injuries, Bangladesh is set to face one of the strongest teams in the ICC tournament to face other challenges of a demanding tournament. South Africa who are intense in this tournament had one of their biggest victories against the defending champions with a 229 runs defeat.

Their last encounter concluded with the victory of Bangladesh in the World Cup 2019. South Africa would be looking forward to seeking revenge for their last encounter.
