No we already have too many spinners. Gazi and Raj's 20 over and then Riyad, Nasir, Naeem can bowl for 10 to 15 overs.. Now you definitely need your best pacers to bowl with the new ball in tandem for few overs. As we know Mirpur pitch never assists the spinner as much as they do for the pacers. That's why we went with 3 pacers in Asia Cup and reaped the benefit somewhat. But as WI plays really well against pace it won't be a good idea to give them too many overs of fast bowling to play. 10 or 15 overs of fast bowling is enough IMO. So we need our 2 best pacers for Mirpur.
Also don't expect them to struggle the same way against the spinners in the next match. They must be practicing hard to deal with spinners. So if we have too many spinners then that might just be too monotonous and they might start to feel comfortable against spin.
