this trio is overall quicker by a fair bit. and i think the most important thing is the variation they bring.

shahadat and rubel both get reverse, with rubel's being more pronounced. shahadat has the best bouncer, rubel has the best yorkers. rubel also gets conventional swing. shahadat gets the odd ball to bounce due to his height and that accounted for the gambhir wicket and carbon copy dravid wicket in 2007. shafi, i haven't seen enough of to comment but will hopefully today. shahadat also seems to be able to jag the ball back into the right hander off the seam.

if we can get sajidul back, he will add variation as a pacy, left arm swinger.

if they all develop, mash can become an ODI specialist, and simaltaneously be our Test bowling coach/consultant!
Shafiul is able to swing away from left hander. He was troubling Ghambir with that.
