Tapash has been blooded in the last six months as the selectors look to the future.

The youngster is far from the finished product but has progressed in the international game in that period.

The main strength of his bowling is his accuracy and his economy rate has come down as his experience has increased.

In his first two outings he claimed the key Sri Lankan scalp of Sanath Jayasuriya and has since bagged Herschelle Gibbs and Wavell Hinds twice each.

The first time he dismissed Gibbs came during his debut match in South Africa when he finished with three wickets.

It was also the first time he had bowled out his full 10 overs and if he can get close to a similar return this time around he will be a happy man.
