Default Aftab Ahmed

I know he's been performing really bad lately. In fact, I never supported his inclusion in the team a couple of months ago - i thought he just wasn't ready to be in the international arena yet. True he did well in the U-19 side, but I still thought Nafis was more consistent than him, and that Aftab needed more nurturing before earning a place in the national squad.

However, since then he's played a couple of good innings and recorded the best bowling figures for a bangladeshi in a single ODI, but he's also been very inconsistent.

Having said that, I still think he should be given more opportunities. Dropping him now may destroy his confidence forever. I feel he should be given more chances even if he underperforms. If he still fails to perform, I'd be more than happy to relegate him to domestic cricket until he finds his form back.

What do you guys think?
