Taskin had complained of back pain
Bangladesh pace bowler Taskin Ahmed is set to miss the remainder of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League T20 due to a recurrence of a back injury.
An MRI revealed his pain is due to a previous injury and that they are not ready to take any risk with him considering that he will be required during the home series against Afghanistan.
“Taskin's back injury is an old one. He informed us that he's feeling the pain after the Chattogram phase. We did an MRI after that and it revealed the injury as an old one,” Sylhet franchise physician Joy Saha said on Saturday. He added that now they have communicated the matter to BCB medical team and now working according to their prescription.
“We can't take a risk with him right now as the Afghanistan series is coming up. We're evaluating all the possibilities to make him ready for that series. If his pain doesn't decrease, we can't play him in the BPL,” added the Sunrisers official.
Taskin played four matches so far in the tournament and claimed five wickets at an economy of 8.92.
