It would be an absolute atrocity if we don't plan on crowding the team with spinners against England. Lets face it, that's our best and only realistic chance of beating them. Over the years the team has gotten considerably better at dealing with subcontinental conditions and they have trounced us without much trouble in previous visits. But I believe we have a more attacking bowling attack now. The prescription would be simple make dustbowls which takes sharp turn and bounce from third day onwards and have at least two specialist spinners in the team.

The inclusion of both Riyad and Naeem cannot negate the need for a second specialist spinner. On present form I believe Shuvo and Sajib are the leading candidates...by a country mile. At this juncture I would go with Sajib as his numbers are phenomenal. But I must confess, I haven't seen either of them bowl, so we will just have to wait and see and then evaluate.
