Default I would rather drop Akram

I would rather drop Akram and give Bulbul a second chance.

The statistics did say (only from the 2nd innings) that Akram survived 23 balls for 5 runs, (whereas Bulbul could not survive even 1 ball - a golden duck) but from the way Akram batted - he always looked to be getting out rather than trying to stay in.

So far, Bulbul had come at a time when Muralitharan was bowling and was out off his bowling twice in this test match.

And as Muralithran will not be playing in the second test match, so I think that it is an ideal opportunity for Bulbul to bat well.

And he is a dependable batsman, other than the best batsman Sumon.
