move him up as an opener he can play a responsible innig with out any worry and we will have run on the board.
I totally agree with this comment. I think we need to arrange the batting lineup accordingly. But then again, there is so many players in our squad right now fighting for the spots. Before Tamim broke into the scene, there was Javed Omar and Shahriar Nafees as openers. Now we have two new openers, where is Shahriar Nafees suppose to fit at #3, i have yet to see him perform well in that position. As for Habibul Bashar's spot, i think the second test should be his last attempt to make any impact, if not then we should definetly bring in Rajin Saleh. Though his strike rate isnt admirable, he can hold the crease for a long time.
I think we still have not found a decent combination since fatullah 2006.
