In the Chittagong Test, Taijul Islam has shined most among the bowlers of Bangladesh against Pakistan. He took 7 wickets of the visitors in the first innings and helped Bangladesh to take the lead.

However, due to the failure of the batters, Bangladesh have lost the first Test by 8 wickets. Pakistan coach and spin legend Saqlain Mushtaq praised Taijul's bowling.

“I like Taijul very much. The place he attacked, didn't give the batters any chance. Not only deliver any flight ball, but also did not give a chance to take singles. I really like his control,' said Saqlain.

However, Saqlain thinks that there is an opportunity to add more variety to Taijul's bowling. He thinks his bowling will improve if he can spin a little more. The Pakistani coach was impressed by Taijul's patience.

“I think he should add more varieties in his bowling. That would give him something extra. A little more over spin can help him a lot. But I like his temperament, his patience very much. Control is the main strength of Taijul,” he added.

Taijul took eight wickets in the match but unfortunately had to remain in the losing side.
