Personally for me, if you don't have the numbers to show for, I won't buy it. Simple.

Taskin is not Brett Lee or Shoaib Akhter to unsettle batsmen with pace and bounce. That is just a myth. Plus in terms of pace, he is just above average by Bangladesh standard.

Also unsettling only works if you can keep it tight. Even bowlers with serious pace like Mohammed Asif, Wahab Riaz, or Mitchell Johnson used to release pressure with flurry of boundaries instead of unsettling batsmen.

Therefore, if you overlook numbers, you are likely to get buyer's remorse.
