Taskin is working on this emotions.

That breakdown was another instance of Taskin reacting emotionally, an issue for which he has had to lean on several of Bangladesh's senior players, including captain Mashrafe Mortaza, in the past. He has been chastised by his team-mates and coaches a number of times, including on the field, for showing too much emotion. His social-media posts, too, have attracted criticism as being too revelatory, even as a few senior figures in Bangladesh cricket have advised him to dial it down. The more central problem for Taskin, however, has been the loss of pace, one of the chief reasons he lost his place in the Bangladesh side.
Also working on this loss of pace:

In his last international appearance, during the Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka last year, Taskin bowled at speeds of 120-125 kph, a decline from his earlier pace of 135+ kph. A fitness issue was also evident during the Sri Lanka tri-series, when he struggled to beat the bat.
