We have a lots of spinners to check runs. Why should not go with Nazmul in test matches.
I'm more worried about batting. One of Anamul/Mominul could have been in the team.
Nazmul might not have good pace but he is one of Bangladesh's best seam bowlers. He was the best bowler against Pakistan in the 2nd Test match because of his disciplined line and length and the movement he was getting off the pitch. So I thought he should've been there. Abul does have potential but is still very raw and a few years away from being ready.
Anyways, no point of really talking about what could've/should've happened. Whoever has been selected is selected now since we should back whoever is in the squad and hope for the best.
