I don't understand why Mahmudullah refuses to bat in the top order. This isn't the first time he has run out of partners. I think the solution at hand is obvious. We need to demote Nasir to number 7 and bring Mahmudullah at Naeem's position with Mushy coming in at 4. That way we can at least save the middle order against the swinging ball should a wicket fall early.
Get well Bruce
