Although not very good news for Tapash Baisya himself, Farhad Reza has been in pretty good touch and should contribute a bit more to the Bangladesh team.

Did Tapash Baisya even play a game thus so far? I personally can't remember, anyway it would definitely would be a sad thing for him.

Yeah just the one match against Australia. He hurt the ankle and tried two times to bowl but looked in quite visible pain and pulled out both times mid delivery before having to leave the field. Was quite sad, especially since he had Gilchrist early on but was dropped.

Baisya is a steady bowler at his best, but nobody likes to see a player getting injured and as result missing the WC, so i feel bad for him.
Not really an improvement either way. Baisya was offering much, but Farhad looked absolute mincemeat when I saw him bowl (admittedly only once) in the Champions Trophy. If they want to replace one of the batsman, Rajin Saleh has to be the prime candidate, particularly as Farhad has made almost no runs all winter. He's without a ton in all Bangladeshi cricket IIRC.
As for Tapash, as was said, it's a blessing in disguise. Not because Farhad is actually any good, but because he has infinitely less chance of being selected than Tapash did - so betters bowlers than both such as Rasel and Shahadat now have more chance of playing.

I think what pup11 meant was that Baisya was fairly unthreatening and never looked very likely to run through a lineup, with either pace or accuracy. Steady probably wasn't the best word, but that was the initial impression I got from reading his comment.
Err, I'd say Bashar should draft Shahadat for the game against the South Africans, true he can be pretty expensive at times, but maybe a little more fire-power is needed in the linup *me thinks* !?!?!?!?!?!

Wouldn't be a bad idea, and most likely it will happen that way. Mortaza and Shadhadat to share the new ball, while the mass of left arm spinners continue through the innings.
