There was a time England's ODI attack was based on a group of medium pacers-Adam Hollioake, Douggie Brown, Ealham. Their philosophy was to keep it tight and not allow any runs. Least we could do that is to follow a similar approach. Instead we ditch guys with good basics like Nazmul and pick guys like Shahadat, Abul hasan etc.
They had to discard that approach because that was not doing anything good for them....do you really like to adopt a failed approach?
Guys with more pace and accuracy should be the way to go. A little effort can make them more accurate. Shafiul and Rubel bowled well, but Rubel needs to learn keeping his brain cool under pressure. So we have Shafi, Rubel, Shahadat, Mash to chose from. Zia certainly can be in ODIs, due to his Allrounder ability.
Pace is an attack when they have pace, slow mediums even deteriorates effectiveness of our spin attack... Because facing them isn't any significant change for the batsman....so you don't unsettle any batsman while you change between pace and SLA/spin.
