It is a very tough call indeed.
The way I see ... We have Tamim, Nazim, Jaharul, Mushi, Shakib, Nasir, Riyad who can bat AND SHOULD do the job posting/chasing a good total.
However, given our past experience we hardly ever managed to post/chage a total 270-280! One extra batsman MAY help us to get that mark, but beyond 300 is big big question! Its a 'never been there zone' for BD, especially against top team. So our TOP PRIORITY should be to keep the runs below 300 by any means, need options in hand to try that, and ONLY THEN we can think of a game WE ARE IN and try BE COMPETITIVE till the end.
We may end up scoring 180 odd runs, but should try most to restrict first, hence a bowler, Nazmul/Shafiul should be in the team like last game.
