Taskin: Bowlers will have to be patient
India, the world's number one Test side, are known for boasting a staggering batting line-up and posting mammoth totals at home, especially in the first innings. To add to that, the pitch is a big factor as it only gave limited support to Bangladesh on day one. India went on to register 356 runs for three wickets with centuries from captain Virat Kohli and opening batsman Murali Vijay. Taskin was the first Bangladesh bowler to initiate a blow when he removed opener Lokesh Rahul in only the fourth ball of the game. Rahul went for an expansive drive through cover, seeing a full ball outside off, only to see his inside edge hit the timber. Bangladesh went on to pick two more wickets; left-arm spinner Tajiul Islam dismissing Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara getting out off the bowling of Mehedi Hasan Miraz. However, the day could have been more productive for Bangladesh had they made use of the opportunities which came their way. “Actually yes, if that run out (of Vijay, missed by Miraz) had taken place, we could have had five-six wickets, instead of the three. Missed catches and run outs are part of the game and one can hardly do anything when it happens. But we should learn from the mistakes. We are hoping to start well [Friday]. That’s all we are thinking of right now,” Taskin told the media Thursday. When queried to share his thoughts on the wicket that had almost no assistance for the Bangladesh bowlers on day one, Taskin said, “Actually in this kind of wicket, bowlers have to be patient. It is easy to play so you cannot bowl lose deliveries. The bowlers have to be very patient here and wait for the batsmen to make mistakes.” It is almost three years now since Taskin entered the international cricket arena. With that said, the Hyderabad Test was only his third five-dayer. And the 21-year old said the experience will stand him in good stead in future in the longer version. “It was a new experience for me because I am playing the third Test of my career. But in India, this is my first Test. You see team India always score big runs in Test cricket against almost every opponent they play at home. The wicket has so far looked flat with very little help for the bowlers,” said Taskin.
