We are better off playing to our strength, spin.

More importantly, 3-seamer bowling line means the pacers are having to take charge of the attack, something they don't in their regular job, ie, domestic league. Our pacers are mostly support system to our spinners in the FC matches where they come and bowl few customary early overs with the new ball and then the SLA's take charge.

When they are not groomed to attack in the domestic league, we can't expect them to do the same in the international matches.
Not agreed fully. If an allrounder like Shakib is there you have total freedom to arrange your team. In a seaming condition easily you can take 3 pacers plus Shakib and Shohag. In that case you will have to play with total 7 batsman. Rather we will have to take decision about number of batsman we want,7/8. 3 pacer is always a good option in favourable condition as they will get little tired.
