Most sides, with a world class al rounder like Shakib, would have no problems fielding a balanced side for an international game but when it comes to bd we even need the 8,9,10 to score heavily to get to a par score.
If we could fix our batting at least, then we could also go in with 3-5 specialist bowlers in one game. At present this is unthinkable from the selector's point of view.
Thank you for explaining the selector's point of view, this post sheds a lot of light on the current selection policy
