Batting down the order,, Gilchrist scores tons of runs, batting down the order even Boucher scores runs..Where does Dhoni or Akmal bat? In fact, there are very few WKs that bats up the order in tests because for Test, only specialists batsman are up the order. For ODIs, you can argue that Gilchrist, Dhoni bats up the order but seriously man,, you cant compare Mushfique with Ashraful/Aftab/Nafees let alone Dhoni or Sangakkara.. He has no batting quality to be up the batting order. Especially not with his stats being as it is. Only time he scored better up the order was against the India match ( his only notable performance since his debute 2 years back). Batting up or down the order doesnt make a batsman a better or worse batsman.
