We are not fielding a balanced side because of this perpetual need for an extra batsman. We need specialist bowlers coming in at 8,9,10 and 11. What good did having the 8th batsman do to our chances of winning? In my opinion having somebody like Mahmudullah coming at 8 reinforces the belief that the top order will almost always fail. We have to fix no. 2 and 3 positions so that we don't need the batsman coming so low.
