Default Suggestions for Bangladesh's series v Australia

1) Use the allrounders properly. Naeem Islam, with bat, and Mahmudullah Riyad, with ball, have a lot more to offer than they are at present. If the specialist batsmen continues to misfire I reckon Naeem should be pushed a couple of slots up, because he has quite a bit of ability with the bat. And Mahmudullah, though a decent middle-order batsman, also can offer more with the ball, he hardly gets a bowl and especially considering he's a right-arm spinner compared to your army of lefties, he really is underbowled

2) Convert your starts. The Bangladeshi batsmen, especially Kayes and Tamim, have begun to convert their starts, but players like Siddique and Raqibul Hasan often score a promising 20-30 only to get out at crucial junctures.

3) Plan the bowling smartly. Generally Bangladesh's bowlers, particularly the spinners, are pretty decent, but for occasions when the opposition is looking to swing at everything you need variety. Give Rubel Hossain more overs; he hardly ever gets to bowl his full quota but easily looks the best of the seamers in the side (Shafiul Islam is a little inconsistent). Plus Rubel can I believe reverse the ball, so give him a spell near the end of the innings, while Mortaza and Shafiul Islam can bowl more with the new ball.
