Everyone here knows SN is Bradman vs Minnows, It would actually be considered a stroke of genius to play him vs Ireland.

Everyone in the 15 has a role to play IMO, there not standbyes. If his role is just to play vs Ireland and Holland as a Minnow Specialist I bet you he'd take it in a heartbeat.

I feel like Shuvo vs Ireland can also help us again as a sort of Minnow Specialist (I think he can be effective vs Any non Asian Squad and should be seriously considered vs the other teams)

The players they would replace would have to know that this is a one off or a two off and they're not being dropped.

Ash also Averages 53 @ 79 SR vs them as well, this would be a good game to get him in the lower order and see if he can Increase the tempo

However this type of thinking is foreign to Shakib, and he's going to pick the squad he's most comfortable with.

How I would do it

Nafees (one off for Juniad)
Ashraful (one off/permanent Ryiad Naeem)
Shuvo (one off/permanent for either Ryiad or Naeem)

Win the Toss and Bat them out of the game
12.6 Syed Rasel to Sangakkara, OUT: What a delivery, completely fooled Sangakkara, first five delivery were the outswingers and now, this one comes in sharply, Sangakkara tries to left it and ball hits the off stump, top class bowling!
