Knows his limitations, and bowls wicket to wicket. I am not saying he should be our strike bowler. For example: Malinga, Welagedera, Fernando, Prasad do more damage than Kulasekera. But Kulasekera plays every match-test, ODI, T20 and bowls his full quota very economically. Consistently picks wickets
Well Mash when healthy, deserves to be our #1 pacer but yes after that Nazmul should definitely be our 2nd bowler. Like you said, despite his lack of pace, he knows how to bowl in the right areas and has variations. I would have Rubel as our 3rd pacer since he's better with the old and can get the ball to reverse. Shafiul should be out of the team. The guy has ability no doubt but he has a lot to learn before he can become a good bowler at this level.
