Personally, the only change I'd make is to drop a slow bowler for a third quick, and given how Sunny is bowling that means Nasir Hossain is congratulated on a reasonable Test debut involving some gutsy batting and economical offspin and is dropped for reasons of team balance.
wow that was politely harsh lol. I think its redundant to have all three of nasir riyad and naeem. From the three off spinning allrounder trio, one of them just has to go. The following question is who ?
Naeem: The genuine test specialist ? Riyad: VC who also has a reasonable test record ? or Nasir: who is pretty lethal, can score quick and is currently performing according to the team needs (except the way he throws his wicket away).
