IMO, Riyad or Shakib is best fit for #3.

Howeve for now:

I remember not too long ago, many people criticized that Naeem is underutilized lower down the order now that he is brought up the order and people want him out. He bowls decent in ODI(at least today) and I am willing to give him two remaining matches. His job in the top order is to make partnerships, If he can't even do that then he should be out of the ODI team for a long time. Naeem is indeed more than capable of big hitting, he just needs to hang in there...

Alhamdulillah! those days are over when a player somehow scores a fifty and he is all set for a series, now we require a little bit due to stiff competition
