As for pacers, after those 3 comes in Abu Jayed and Abu Hider. Saifuddin should be given more games with the A team before being reselected for the national team. We definitely might need a pace allrounder for England and both Saifuddin and Ariful should be considered for it even if it is just for the squad and not starting XI.
Shanto is not an opener, he primarily started out as number 3, he’s generally batted from 3-5 most of his career.

As far as a pace allrounder, hate to say it but soumya is the best option for BD in that department atm.
All Time Test XI: 1 Hobbs 2 B.Richards 3 Bradman 4 Pollock 5 V.Richards 6 Sobers 7 Gilchrist 8 Miller 9 Procter 10 Marshall 11 Warne
