In the T-20 game:
Our pacers failed to get wickets with the new ball- i would say give Nazmul a chance because he bowls wicket to wicket and might get us a breakthrough.
We lost 4 wickets scoring 50 runs-Seriously need a capable batsman in between Tamim,Kayes,Ash,Shakib who are all unpredictable. I would say put Mushfiq somewhere in between as super glue for the batting order since Ryad is unavailable.
Didn't make use of Nasir and Alok while bowling- these two guys do not deserve a place solely on their batting. They should be viewed as batting alrounders just like Farhad Reza, Naeem etc. So in the 50 over game we better make a plan on how to maximize their contribution.
Openers need to play long innings- Since its Bishoo we are worried about most.. it is highly important that at least one left hander stays at the crease majority of the time. At the moment we have three out of which two are openers and usually do not survive till the spinners. This needs to change as we have only right handers to follow afterwards (apart from Shakib)
Riyad does not want to bat up the order even if he was available. It is a good idea to send mushfiq at 4. But this jeopardize Hom's inclusion which is not a problem at the moment since he is out of touch. I will only consider one of nafees and ash at no 3. 3 is hopeless.
I am just wondering if alok doesnt live upto expectation who should replace him. The only contender is see is naeem who is horrible at low down and who is already a replacement for Riyad this series. In that case I am guessing they will bring in Hom at 4 and send mushfiq at either 5 or 6. I just don't like the shuffling in the order so much even for the ones who made their places permanent ie Shakib,Mushfiq Riyad.
