if naeem plays then i think he should be batting in the top 6, #7 spot is generally for a keeper or an allrounder, you don't put a specialist bat there. that means riyad or nazimuddin would have to step aside to fit him in.

also shakib at #3 in tests is a big ask of him, don't forget he's also the main go to strike bowler.

for t20s i'd swap someone for zia personally, he's a hit and miss batsman, not even really a batsman just a slogger and doesn't offer enough with the ball.
