To me in last match we had a very good startegy and almost paid off.
I want to test indian batsman against pace.I ll play with 3 pacers.Nazmul in Shafiul out in a grassy wicket.
Playing with 8 batsmen theory didn't quite work out in the past mainly because we had Riad & Naeem batting at No.7 & 8 respectively. They were the best blockers in the team but Siddons believed they were Lance Klusener!
Now we have Nasir who's a genuine match winner and if we can bring in Anamul as well, that might not be a bad idea!
