The Bangladesh Cricket Board has denied fast bowler Taskin Ahmed permission to play for Yorkshire County Cricket Club in the current County Championship season, citing the club’s unwillingness to take a risk on him ahead of the world cup

According to Cricbuzz, YCCC head coach Ottis Gibson, who formerly worked as the bowling coach for the Bangladesh squad, approached the fast bowler about playing for them.

Yorkshire wanted him to play for them, but we turned them down because we didn’t want him to take on a lot of red-ball cricket in the county before the World Cup, according to Jalal Yunus, the BCB’s chairman of the cricket operation, on Cricbuzz on Tuesday


Taskin Ahmed was a member of Bangladesh’s team despite just undergoing therapy for a side strain.He was unable to play in the three ODIs against Ireland due to the injury, as well as the Test series against Ireland.

As the hosts began their practice at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Sunday (June 4), the right-arm pace bowler bowled for the first time at full strength. Chandika Hathurusingha was in charge of the team and had arrived in Dhaka the day before (June 3) to get his team ready for the series, which will start at SBNS on June 14.

Habibul Bashar, member of BCB selection panel added that he feels sorry for the pace bowler as he is yet to appear in a reputed global tournament despite being offered previously.

He was previously desired by the clubs in the PSL (Multan Sultans) and the IPL (Lucknow Super Giants), therefore I think it is unfortunate for him. However, you must realize that he is our strongest asset, and we cannot afford to take any chances at this moment in time before the World Cup, added Habibul.
