Probably the least talked about player in the team. Don't think there is even a thread for him. I must say he gets some unfair criticism such as saying he only gets wickets when opposition are well ahead. There might be some element of truth to that but he was the only bowler creating pressure for the indians with his line and length and did not try to overdo and overthink things. And thats what you need to do on these sort of flat pitches. Even the great bowlers such as Herath have talked about having to bowl defensively when the situation asks for it and Taijul showed us how to do that.

He just stuck to his line and length and was going for very little runs whereas other bowlers were bowling half volley and overpitching balls. Taijul created the pressure on the other end and picked up those wickets and should have gotten more if we could field properly and had a wicket keeper with brains. Even during the England series he bowled very well with tight line and length creating pressure for the batsman which actually helped Shakib and Mehedi to pick up wickets.

When the wicket offers nothing Taijul is our best bowler imo.
