Right-arm pace bowler Taksin Ahmed said national team bowling coach Allan Donald has asked him to be "fast and aggressive" in the upcoming limited-overs series against the West Indies.
The bowler is all set to be back in action after a long gap imposed by injury. The pacer is now with the team in the West Indies.
"He (Allan) told me to be fast and aggressive," Taskin said. "After joining the team, I've talked to him and asked him what my role should be as I just came back from an injury. He told me to do what I'm used to doing."
Donald directed Taskin to bowl as fast as he could while keeping his line and length accurate.
He said a bowler like Taskin may concede more runs at one stage of a match, but at another, he can take wickets and win the match for his team.
Right before the limited-over series (three one-days and as many T20Is), Bangladesh and the West Indies took on each other in a two-match Test series that the visitors lost 0-2.
Taskin believes Bangladesh has a great chance to make a comeback in the limited-over matches.
"It's unfortunate that we couldn't play well in the last series," he said. "But we will now play a T20I and ODI series where we can do well."
The T20Is of this series will take place on July 2, 3 and 7, and the ODIs on July 10, 13 and 16.
Bangladesh will play in the ACC Asia Cup T20 later this year. After that, they will take part in the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia. So, all the T20I matches ahead of these two big events are important for the Tigers.
