Speedsters Taskin Ahmed and Shoriful Islam have been ruled out of the first Test against Sri Lanka, scheduled to begin on May 15, due to their respective injuries. Taskin is, in fact, likely to miss the entire red-ball series. BCB cricket operation chairman Jalal Yunus confirmed the development to Cricbuzz and stated that they want the pace duo to return to full fitness given the packed international calendar in the near future. Earlier, Shoriful sat out the two-match Test series against South Africa due to an ankle injury.
