nasir being calm and collected means the higher he bats in the middle order then the more runs he should make.
But Hussey now bats at #6 and has made that spot his own. Thats what i meant by the similarities between Hussey and Nasir (not by the way they play) but because of the roles they play in their team. Nasir is the perfect fit at #6. He will play the Hussey role in the team and i think he will be an asset to the team there. Naeem is scoring 100's at #4 so let him stay there. Shakib has always batted at #5 in tests so leave him there. That means Nasir at #6.
