They play pace, even our kind of pace, better than spin. We have quality full and part time spinners capable of taking 20 wickets. The point is to win against an otherwise improving opponent with a spin-heavy attack
I don't think any of our three specialist pacers would make much of a difference with the ball. I chose Raju for his batting ability. Also, I'm not high on Robiul's chances to improve upon or maintain his recent "performance". Once I set aside all relativity and just look at his bowling, I see the type of rank mediocrity we've seen before. At least both Raju and Rubel have pace. Rubel has also been to generate swing. Their best deliveries would always be more threatening than someone like Robiul's when it comes to proactively taking 20 wickets.
