The good thing is with teh FTP and general trends in Test cricket, he will probably never see such a pitch even if he gets 100 test caps.

Mushfiq on the other hand is afar more technically competant fellow and a more assured stroke player also. But we finally have a middle order that is decent (legendary by BD standards) even compared to G8 sides.

I think SN still has a place in teh side, Junaid should be a 12th man slip catcher...and Riyad will have to fight for a place.

Just imagine 2-3 years from now when Anamul and Soumya come into the side, domestic records indicate they're better than even the guys we have now (barring Tamim, SHakib, Mushy, Nasir).

We just need some bowlers.
Technique is overrated, results are all that matter. You don't see other top order batsmen lasting as long as he has. If the pitch is so easy to bat on, Tamim/SN/Junaed should have lasted longer.
Screw the IPL, I'm going to the MLC!
