Bangladesh speedster Taskin Ahmed said that his mind has filled with gloom whenever he has seen a slew of home and away series suspended one after another due to the devastating lockdown for the dreadful coronavirus pandemic.

So far Bangladesh witnessed five home and away series within the last four months for COVID-19. Such a trend was started with the suspension of the third-leg tour in Pakistan, where Bangladesh were scheduled to play a Test and as many ODI.

Finally, Bangladesh saw the suspension of their tour in Sri Lanka after New Zealand and Australia coupled with the tour of Ireland for which players have been affected hugely.

“To be honest, whenever the lockdown has set in, the series one after another has been suspended,” said Taskin Ahmed, who is glad to have joined the individual training session at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium yesterday.

“There is a group of the national team’s players on social media where I saw the series in Sri Lanka to be suspended. The New Zealand series has also been suspended earlier before Australia suspended their series in Bangladesh. T20 World Cup will not be held in due time,” Taskin told.

“I’m trying in such a way so that I can bring my fitness and bowling better than the past after the conclusion of the lockdown. Actually I’m trying my best to develop myself so that I can fight back and get a chance to play at every series and tournaments,” he further said.

Praising for Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to give such a platform to make them fit and sound before going to competitive cricket, the pacer said all will try to capitalize the opportunity entirely.

Along with that, he also said that every cricketer wants to return to cricket as early as possible.

“The BCB has done as per their capability. Now we have to maintain ourselves. We have to move forward cautiously. I am sure everybody will do this thing in the right way. Everybody wants to start cricket as early as possible,” he adde
