5 nasir
6 mushy
7 dhiman

tamim is our best opener so of course he makes it, anamul is our best prospect and done well in FC domestics plus u19 WC, momimul has been batting #3 lately and is still the A teams best batsman, shakib and nasir are our best partnership building batsmen who can play in any situation and generally come up good when needed, mushy has been our best #6 for years in tests and ODIs and dhiman can play as wicket keeper batsman (he's not horrible with the bat). but this will never happen because mushy will keep the gloves, and i don't think it's likely both anamul and mominul will be selected.

possible they'll put shakib at #3 which imo is to much to ask when he's also expected to be the best bowler.

possible nazimuddin wasn't in the A team because they weren't questioning his spot as 2nd opener, i think naeem has a good chance of being in the team to.
I dont think there is any benefit putting in a keeper if Mushfiq is going to bat at #6. We might as well put Naeem in Dhimans spot. I would only put a keeper in if Mushfiq is batting high up the order (which i doubt will happen). Naeem would be more useful to the team because he can bowl as well.
