Tapash Baisya (Bengali: তাপস বৈশ্য) (born 25 December 1982, in Sylhet) is a former Bangladeshi cricketer.

Tapash Baisya took 36 Test wickets, although they came at a bowling average of nearly 60. Nevertheless, he has taken the third-most wickets of any Bangladeshi fast bowler, behind Mashrafe Mortaza and Shahadat Hossain.

He played first-class cricket for Sylhet Division from 2000-01 to 2012-13. His highest score was 112 off 173 balls, batting at number eight against Chittagong Division in 2006-07.[2] His best bowling figures were 6 for 37 against Dhaka Division in 2012-13.[3]
