ICC World Cup 2019 is going to start from 30th May in England & Wales. After the Bangladesh team was announced there was surprisingly the name of Abu Jayed, 25-year-old right-arm pacer. Abu Jayed has replaced Taskin Ahmed, who missed out due to an ankle injury. Jayed has already played  5 Test matches and 3 T20 games, with 15 international wickets – 11 in Tests and 4 in T20s.

In the domestic Dhaka Premier League, which he played for his franchise Prime Dholeshar, he took 9 wickets in the last 5 games. This is in tandem with the productive domestic career that he’s had so far, with 227 wickets at the First Class level, and 65 List-A wickets, with bowling averages of 29.12 and 31.13 respectively.

In the International Cricket Council website, Jayed said, “It’s nice to be picked, but now the challenge is to make a place in the playing XI and repay the faith shown by the team management.” He was surprised when he came to know he got selected in the 15-member squad.

Jayed told the media persons “I am playing for the last 10 years and during this time, had the opportunity to play a lot of cricket at different levels. So don’t think it will be a big problem”. On June 2, Bangladesh will have their match against South Africa at the Kennington Oval.
