Should we make Anamul that work horse when he's yet to play his first test? Even after he plays a few more tests it won't be wise to give him the double duty before he finds his feet at the international level.

Fact of the matter is, we can complain all we want but there's none really better keeper/ batter package of a player out there for us to replace Mushy which is a sad thing.
dhiman is the best option if we want a keeper who isn't mushy but can also bat. he's done pretty well in the NCL and yes there is a big jump from NCL to test cricket but he's still a good option imo, he's quality with the gloves and has good batting potential. but the selectors always prefer to choose an extra batsman anyway and dhiman doesn't make it as one of the best 8 batsmen in BD therefore he doesn't get into the team. but as a keeper batsman package he's actually a good option imo.
