Bangladesh pacer Taskin Ahmed expressed his excitement after he was roped in by Sylhet Sunrisers for the upcoming Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League season 8.

In a video massage posted by Sylhet Sunrisers official Facebook account, Taskin said, “I will play for Sylhet Sunrisers in upcoming BPL season. Lets support me and Sylhet team. We want to play as a team and go to the final.”

Earlier, Sylhet bagged paceman Taskin Ahmed as a direct signing, prior to the Player Draft. They also signed in veteran Sri Lanka batsman Dinesh Chandimal, UAE fast bowler Siraj Ahmed outside the draft.

The franchise has been hired former West Indies pacer Mervyn Dillon as head coach and English coach Julian Wyatt as the batting consultant.

The month-long money-spanning BPL is all set to roll onto the ground from January 21 while the player draft of the six-team event will be held on Monday at the hotel in the capital.
