These r called our main guys!
(See the averages written above)

Among these 4 main players, Mohammad Ashraful and Hannan Sarkar's batting average is increasing, slowly with each tournament that they play, whereas Habibul Bashar and Alok Kapali's batting average (I'm talking about in ODIs in particular) is decreasing.

Doesn't it mean something?

Among the other players whom we do not consider to be our main batsman, most of the ODIs that Rana played, some of them include batting avg against Zimbabwe, a far weaker side in bowling (just look at our batting stats against them - all our above 250 totals are against them), Khaled Mashud is a far more experienced player.

And besides, the players with better average, those whom we don't consider to be our main players, have faced a slightly older ball - so again, we're facing the same problem - NEW BALL PHENOMENON.

Only Javed Omar has a better batting average even after he is facing the new ball. But then again, he is a specialist opening batsman, so he should have a better batting average considering his experience - in facing the new ball.
