His recent form is CRAP. If I have to plate the 5th O/S I will pick K Cooper or Nasir Jamshed instead of Malik. I will be missing two local players in top order: Nazim Uddin and Aftab.
It now seems that it was Kevon Cooper of Trinidad who was bought, and not Tom Cooper of the Netherlands...
If that's the case, then Cooper should be able to bolster the seam attack. He's a tricky medium-pacer who is also a hard-hitting lower-order batsman, to come to the crease when there are about four overs left in the innings.
