No, thats the natural move. They are both the same sort of player, and Mahmadullah has showed more. Nasir had a pretty decent first Test, and looks like he belongs, and he should definitely be part of the squad ... but he didnt do enough to displace Riyad, if Riyad is fit.
Me, I'd like Riyad to play more First Class cricket before coming back into the team. but if they think he's fit, then Nasir is the obvious player to drop.
