Yeah he sould go now.. what is doing in this team :E ? He has been playing since the (almost) begining. But does his game reflect that he knows his role in this team? Or has he done anything so charismatic like Rafique, Pilot, the skipper, ashraful, nafees or any of his ream mates that can make his place so secured as it is right now? He has only one century. So do even Rafique and Pilot. He has a record of carrying through the innings and that could be a good enough reason to make his position unquestionable, but at the moment he seems to be competing with his yonger opening partner to beat balls by runs rather than trying to keep his wicket and secure one side. He is playing free strokes, attempting every ball, which is not his job. It seems to be he is batting like a test innings in ODI and ODI innings in a test match and getting out very very quickly. And look at his average. It is close to Rafique and Pilot although the later two have other important jobs to do. If he is kept out of the team then Nafees Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim will see lights and they will start competing for that spot. It will be great for the team itself.
