Farhad actually has a very similar bowling average and strike rate to Saqlain Sajib, and also an offie would add variety to Enamul's SLA. Farhad is also a consistent top performing batsmen in domestic cricket and so would bring a big advantage over Saqlain in terms of batting.
Farhad's only a part time bowler though bro. Look at last years NCL stats. He bowled about 100 overs whereas Saqlain bowled about 370 overs. So to rely on Farhad to bowl all those overs and rely on him as a batsman is being defensive IMO. I would have Saqlain in there and have Naeem bowl some of his offies.
