Let's look at our CT'17 bowling stats, since we're expected to have similar pitches in WC, where the ball won't grip on the surface for seam or turn -

Player Mat Inns Overs Mdns Runs Wkts BBI Ave Econ SR 4 5 Ct St
Mehidy Hasan Miraz111.0040--4.00-0000
Mashrafe Mortaza4434.0116021/2980.004.70102.00000
Mosaddek Hossain3312.207333/1324.335.9124.60010
Taskin Ahmed2215.009222/4346.006.1345.00000
Shakib Al Hasan4327.001680--6.22-0000
Mustafizur Rahman4429.0018311/52183.006.31174.00030
Rubel Hossain4430.0019121/2195.506.3690.00000

Taskin didn't do anything significant there, but he did not look as useless as the three medium-fasts who had SR of 90, 102, and 174! Besides him, and besides a surprise spell from Mosaddek, we simply didn't have a wicket taker in that tournament!
