World Champion U19 players promise bright future


The performance of some of the players of the World Champion Under-19 team drew the attention of many during the BCB President’s Cup, reports BSS.

Bangladesh fast bowlers Rubel Hossain and Taskin Ahmed were amongst those many people who believed these boys could make it big in future.

Rubel and Taskin had first-hand experience of playing against and with those youngsters in the BCB President’s Cup. From what they have seen, some of the players are so talented that they faced off the bowlers without any fear.

Rubel and Taskin however didn’t single out any name particularly but said overall the performance of the Under-19 boys were extremely good.

“The players who were selected from the World Champion Under-19 team are really good players. Most of them performed up to the mark, which is a pleasing thing,” Rubel Hossain said of the youngsters.

“I won’t single out any name particularly but there were two or three players, who can really make it big in future. I think they are capable of being future stars of Bangladesh,” he added.

Taskin Ahmed thanked the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) for providing such a platform like BCB President’s Cup in which they gave the youngsters a chance to play with and against the senior players.

“Thanks BCB for providing such a good platform for all. Here the junior players played with and against senior players, which enriched them,” Taskin said.

“Some of the batsmen and bowlers of the Under-19 team showed their extreme talent. Hopefully they will continue it and do well in future too.”
