First we need to understand how our batting lineup is structured ie how it functions.

Our lineup at present can only score 320 runs. Maybe 330 at most (got 329 vs PAK in 2015). But we have scores of 320, 324, 326, and 329 in the past 4 years which indicates that 325 is about the most runs we can score with the personnel that we have.

All the major sides, barring maybe SL, PAK, WI can threaten 350 or even 400 on any given day.

We can't.

We need to therefore place an emphasis on bowling and fielding. Our lineup:

Anchors: Tamim and Anamul
Accelerators: Shakib
Balanced (ie both): Mushfiq, Mahmudullah
Finishers: Sabbir
Bowlers: Saifuddin, Miraz (? still too early)
Bangladesh: Our Dream, Our Joy, Our Team
