I've been thinking the same. Nowadays Anamul plays at the #3 spot. I think he himself figured out he's a lot more effective there. He mentioned in an interview that's his preferred spot. Junaid is a good example of the difference between playing as an opener and playing at #3. He did quite well after coming down to #3. I also dislike the fact that a lot of people are placing Mominul a middle order batsman ( positions. #4,#5) into a top order #3. There is a difference there and I feel he'll fail and we'll ruin him if he bats at #3.
