Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo stated that they don't want to risk playing injured pacer Taskin Ahmed in the second ODI.

The right-arm pacer incurred a lower-back injury which ruled him out from the first ODI, which Bangladesh won by a narrow margin of 1-wicket with the help of Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mustafizur Rahman's unbeaten 51-run partnership.

Taskin, who is yet to recover from the injury, returned to the nets on Tuesday and bowled a few overs during the net session.

"Taskin had an injection about three or four days ago. He has done a bit of gym yesterday and had a bit of a bowl today for five six overs," said Domingo.

Domingo was positive for Taskin's return in the two-match Test series, he also feels this would provide other pacers an opportunity.

"I'm not sure we want to risk playing him yet. There is a lot of cricket to be played, there are a few Test matches and also have opportunity to keep developing the other fast bowlers. So I don't think we want to risk playing him yet but he is on his way to recovery," he added.
