I understand what you are saying. Yes he should have come at number 3. He is not the kind of batsman who can take the attack to the opposition batting at number 6. He is the most experienced batsman and we needed him to lead from the front today. But I guess whatever he was doing wasn't that bad as we were very much in the game in last 10 overs when we needed only 75 runs. If he had Mushfiq or Mashrafee on the other end, we might had a game in our hand.
