Very good question Nadim!, Although I voted for Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes is probably the ideal person because he's a specialist in that format I mean his record suggests that he does well in ODIs as compared to T20s and especially Tests which isn't his form of game. I will however continue to use 3 pacers in ODIs as it has 'overall' benefited us in the Asia Cup but will swap one fast bower for another. Here's my ideal XI where its a format we have a huge chance of winning anyway:

01.Tamim Iqbal
02.Imrul Kayes
03.Anamul Haque/Shahriar Nafees
04.Shakib Al Hasan
05.Nasir Hossain
06.Mushfiqur Rahim
07.Mahmudullah Riyad
08.Mashrafe Mortaza
09.Abdur Razzak
10.Rubel Hossain
11.Nazmul Hossain

I feel for certain that this XI is good enough for us to win the ODI series possibly another Banglawash. But definitely no Nazimuddin or Shahadat after their poor performance in Asia Cup. We would've won like it or not if these two played to their A game. Naeem Islam has improved now and should for now just focus on Tests so he doesn't ruin all his hard work. This squad I have selected is based on ODI performances and records and should be good enough to win the ODI series at least 3:2 4:1 if not another Banglawash. Its important though that we win this series anyway because if we do, in our future ODI series, instead of playing 3 customary ODIs, may be raised to 5 meaning more matches for our team so its important for us anyway.
