Not much the selectors can do here. SLA's is supposedly our strength and we have no choice but to use them. Beside Shakib, it will be either Razzak/Sunny/Enam Jnr who will be taken in as the 2nd spinner. Shakib and other SLA will keep on bowling from one end. The pacers will only be there to make the ball old and take the shine off.

But Muhsy and management can get creative.

1. They can have the SLAs bowl around the wicket as that will give a natural angle to create more LBWs and bat-pad catches.

2. Have Riyad and Nasir (both offies) bowl to the lefties from over the wicket. As they will take the bowl away from the batsmen, they can consider two slips.

Let's see what they do.
