Taskin Ahmed's Fitness Update Ahead of T20 World Cup Opener

Bangladesh are hopeful of getting a fully-fit Taskin Ahmed ahead of their T20 World Cup 2024 opener against Sri Lanka in Dallas, as the pacer continues to recover from his rib injury suffered against Zimbabwe. The tall right-arm pacer had sustained a rib fracture in the fourth T20I against Zimbabwe at home and had to miss their three-match T20I series against USA last month. Despite the injury, Bangladesh kept Taskin in the side, and he will play a crucial role in the Bangla Tigers' journey in the tournament. The availability of Taskin became vital for the Najmul Hossain Shanto-led side, as Shoriful sustained six stitches on his left hand during their warm-up game against India and is set to miss their campaign opener against the Lankans on June 7.
