I dont think we have good enough # 2 and 3 yet. Anamul/Mominul are not tested. We should play 4 full time bowler and Shakib. Riyad or Nasir both cant be in there. We need to aim to take 20 wickets.
i think at this stage this is probably the best team structure for BD. that way we get 5 frontline bowlers (counting shakib) and we get 7 strong batsmen. the only thing is i think mash's test days are done and i would try anamul for sure in home conditions maybe even mominul.

and i agree there isn't room for both nasir and riyad, one of their spots needs to go to a bowler. we shouldn't need 8 batsmen to score a decent total anyway, is a negative way of looking at things and it negatively affects the bowling unit and the potential of winning the match.
All Time Test XI: 1 Hobbs 2 B.Richards 3 Bradman 4 Pollock 5 V.Richards 6 Sobers 7 Gilchrist 8 Miller 9 Procter 10 Marshall 11 Warne
