Or play shuvagata, Marshall or shabbir, all are more natural boundary hitters than both naeem and riyad and they all bowl some spin to, shuvagata gets a couple of wickets each NCL match and Marshall got some in the warm-up.
Zia is too much of a slogger #7 should have decent batting ability but I just don't see it in zia, mash can play zia's role as lower order bat very well, abul also could do it imo.
