Agree with you. Riyadh seemed to be one of the best men in form, beside Sakib and Mashrafe. If he is playing, the management must ensure that he is properly used. In cricket form matters more that anything else.

Realistically,with players of medicore abilities, like we have, it is a dillema to choose between specialists and all rounders. A team actually does not need more than one good allrounder. But the average of our specialist batsmen and that of our tailenders are very similar. We depend on the tailenders very often. If the toporder starts scoring runs consistently,part of the problem will be solved. Now we have Sakib, Naeem, Riyadh, in some extent Mashrafe,Ashraful and Nirala as allrounders. With such situation, an underutilization is very much on the card.
