Our top order is a huge suspect. The only way to fix this is to imo go with fresh faces. Really do not want JS, SN, Jahurul or Nazim to be anywhere near the team. The only thing we could do is throw Anamul into the mix. You could gamble with SS or Mominul but other then that i do not say anyone else worthy enough. Imrul is not suited to test cricket. He think its best to leave him as a ODI specialist (similar to Razzak)
I think its best if we leave this lineup for tests
1. Tamim Iqbal
2. Anamul Haque
3. Naeem Islam
4. Mushfiqur Rahim
5. Shakib Al Hasan
6. Nasir Hossain
8. (Another batsmen, allrounder or maybe a bowler?)
If we fit a fresh face at #3 then Naeem would drop to #4 and imo the team lineup will be unbalanced. No point adding a walking wicket at #3. Just shift Naeem there and everyone else can follow suit. If another batsmen is fitted at #3 and Naeem is placed at #4 then the whole lineup will have to shift one place down. That would lead Mahmudullah to bat at #8 which is too low for him.
If people for some reason want to leave Naeem at #4 then the only person i would consider at #3 is Mominul Haque. Other then that i dont want anyone else. Im sick of all the walking wickets ie SN, JS and co.
