Bangladesh pacer Taskin Ahmed likely to miss India T20 World Cup warm-up match

Taskin's presence will be crucial for Bangladesh's World Cup campaign, which kicks off against Sri Lanka on June 7th in Dallas. The team is confident that he will be fit and ready to contribute by then.

Taskin Ahmed, Bangladesh’s pace bowler, is undergoing rehabilitation in the USA and is expected to be fit in time for their opening game of the T20 World Cup 2024 against Sri Lanka. However, he is likely to miss the upcoming warm-up match against India on June 1st.

Taskin’s inclusion in the World Cup squad was a gamble after he suffered a rib fracture.

Bangladesh will play India in a warm-up match on June 1st at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, which will be the venue’s first public event.

The official list of warm-up matches for the T20 World Cup was announced earlier, with games scheduled across the USA and Trinidad and Tobago from May 27th to June 1st.
