Taskin Ahmed pulled out from the remaining BPL due to injury

After suffering a back injury, pacer Taskin Ahmed, who was playing in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2022, has been ruled out of the remainder of the season. His BPL squad, Sylhet Sunrisers, has confirmed this. Due to the obvious injury, the Dhaka cricketer has been forced to miss the group's last two matches. The Bangladesh Cricket Board remains optimistic that the pacer would be able to play in the next white-ball series against Afghanistan.

Operations chairman Jalal Yunus told the media that the physio has assured him that Ahmed would have enough time to heal before the Afghanistan series. He said that Ahmed will be sent to Dhaka by the franchise as planned. Yunus remarked that Ahmed is doing better now and may return to bowling later this week. He believes that Ahmed will be competent for the One-Day Internationals.

In his four outings for Sylhet this season, Ahmed collected five wickets at 23.20. AKS Swadhin, a rookie fast bowler who has only played three T20s, has taken his place.

With the exception of a playoff appearance in the 2013 season, the Sunrisers have always finished in the league stages, and they haven't had a great year this time either. The Sunrisers continue to linger at the bottom of the BPL 2022 scoreboard with just a single win from six performances, totaling three points and a negative NRR of -0.784. As the conclusion of the event draws near, they will be attempting to climb from the bottom.

After a three-year layoff, Ahmed returned to international cricket for the first time in a year. His stamina and commitment have been impressive at that time. Ahmed was a participant of Bangladesh's team that defeated New Zealand in a remarkable Test victory in Mount Maunganui last month.

On February 23rd, 25th, and 28th, Chattogram will host the ODI series against Afghanistan. The two Twenty20 Internationals will be held in Dhaka on March 3rd and 5th.
