Although Bangladesh is superior to England in all three forms, speedster Taskin Ahmed thinks his team can present a strong challenge in the next home white-ball series. England is expected to travel in Bangladesh on February 24 for a white-ball series that will begin on March 1 in Chattogram and Dhaka and consist of three ODIs and as many T20Is.
Bangladesh has won 13 of their previous 14 ODI series at home, including their most recent victory of 2-1 over India. Their only loss came in a 1-2 decision to England in 2016. Additionally, since 2020, Bangladesh has triumphed in three of their past five home T20I series, including victories over Australia, New Zealand, and Zimbabwe. In contrast, their two-match T20I series against Afghanistan ended in a draw. During this time, they only lost one T20I series, to Pakistan in 2021.
“Definitively, playing against them (England) won’t be simple. They are a bigger side (than us) in any format. However, we think we’re a very strong side in our own neighbourhood, and we anticipate fighting with them,” Taskin told reporters on Wednesday (February 8). Everything is illogical, thus I believe the winner will be the team that plays the best cricket on a given day. Even though they (England) are clearly far ahead of us when everything is taken into account, we can still expect to win the series since we are playing at home.
Taskin reported that the team has already begun preparing for the next home series against England under the direction of newly hired head coach Chandika Hathurusingha, who is currently in Australia. Hathurusingha, whose previous term with Bangladesh lasted from 2014 to 2017, is anticipated to arrive on February 20 to start his second one.
“We are happy to see Hathurusingha back. He is a very skilled coach and an honest man, so I have no doubt that we will succeed with him in charge. The people who were young then have grown up, and the team as a whole is likewise in good form,” stated Taskin. “He has communicated with everyone and remains in contact with everyone. He is outlining the positions and outlining his goals.
Taskin continued, “I’ve started my rehab programme as I’m healing from a grade one hamstring rupture that has kept me out of the Bangladesh Premier League since January 30.” “I started my recovery regimen and finished my morning workout. I am moving in accordance with the board’s strategy, and I anticipate beginning to bowl with a short run-up soon, he said.
