^^ I don't think giving debut to two players at the top of the order is a good strategy. I would force Mahmudullah to bat up the order because he is now a very experienced player and should take up more responsibility instead of choosing to hide at the back of the order. Mahmudullah should bat 3 or 4 together with Naeem as these two guys seems to have the temperament for Test cricket. Ayub should be slotted in somewhere lower down the order so that we can ease him into international cricket.
Get well Bruce
