As usual great preview. Our top and middle order need to be responsible and start scoring. period. As our top 5 batsmen rarely score and perform together, we had no choice but to go with five bowlers. Not sure who will be final eleven, but if Bashar playes he needs to realize he has to perform. When I last saw him in NZ, I understand it's NZ condition but the way he was batting, it was very hard to believe he was once the pioneer of BD batting. Mushfiq has to realize too that he need to perform along with our dashing batsmen Ashraful and Aftab. If our top order(first five) can contribute 250 runs in first innings we could manage to give some fight against SA. But only time will tell.

Bowler wise Mash (off form), Rajib, Rafique, Sakib will have long hours coming ahead. I hope it will not be overburden for these four bowlers to bowl 22+ overs for each.
