If batting team gets to pick the powerplay, I think we should indefinitely take it in the 11-15 overs, unless we are 30-3 after 10.
Theres always a risk of losing 2-3 wickets during the powerplay. And the batsman who follow tamim and kayes are slow as tortoise. You sure dont want to leave the powerplay on their hands and make a mess of it given how BD in general poorly manages powerplay to begin with.

Powerplay should always be taken according to the condition of the game and by that solely.
