People are forgetting one thing: Riyad seems to be magic batting with rank tailenders. Remember the Shafiul knock to beat England? He had a similar but less spectacular job in a match v ZIM as well. And this this current p'ship of 172 not out that trumps them all. Keep him at eight, he's not doing badly, not harming his average, and to be honest doesn't have the umph to be a top order batsman. He is our crisis manager.
Bangladesh is a stronger team with Shakib al Hasan.
