Ideal structure of a WORLD CLASS ODI XI:
Lefty/Righty Opening (bonus if one of them is a keeper): Tamim/? (Jahirul)
Balanced RHB, ability to play in all gear, preferably the best batsman in the team (Can we not find another Habibul Basahr?)
Glue-guy (RHB or LHB), dude that suppose to hold both side of the line up together. - Rahim
Specialist bat, free to bat anywhere. Position shouldn't bother him.
Balanced ALR - DEFINITION = Shakib
Aggressive ALR, powerplay specialist. not a blind slogger - Nasir
Specialist Spin - Can support with the bat (Can we not find another Rafique!?)
Pace - Can slog (Fit Mashrafe)
Seam - Nazmul
We are so hell-bent over playing these mediocre ALRs ever since Shakib was born, now we don't have one single specialist batsman in the middle order! Every time a early wicket falls, we should see a confident batsman walking in, not a hengla-petla walking wicket. This is not club cricket, where everyone gets to bat and bowl.
Stop bringing in ALL EFFING ROUNDERS!
