World Cup 2019: Bangladesh seamer Taskin Ahmed broke down to tears while speaking to the media after Bangladesh Cricket Board announce the squad for the World Cup. Ahmed was heartbroken once he came to know that he had not made the cut for the World Cup. Ahmed crying will remind you of Mashrafe Mortaza crying after missing out on the 2011 World Cup. BCB announced a 15-member squad for the upcoming World Cup which will be led by Mashrafe Mortaza. Barring Tasjin’s exclusion there were not too many surprises. Abu Javed has replaced Taskin. Abu has played just 5 Tests and three T20Is, picking up a total of 15 wickets.
Here is Taskin crying while speaking to the media after WC snub.
The Green Army will rely heavily on the senior cricketers in the side like Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib-al-Hasan, Tamim Iqbal and the rest.
Bangladesh will start their WC campaign against South Africa on June 2.
