This team means we will have a strong batting line up from 1-8, as there is a chance we may have a collapse during batting
Exactly my prefered team, not necessarily my batting order though.
I would try SN at #2 and Naem at #3. I would let Hom bat #5 or #6. If things goes right Hom bat @ #5, if things get wrong Rahim can bat ahead of him.
I wouldn't select Hom, if I use him @ #8, I would rather select a bowler. To me Hom is a batsman, so we we select him, we need to find a middle order for him.
In the 2nd innings if we need to address RR to win, we can promote Sakib, Nasir and Rahim ahead of Naeem and/or Rakibul.
