Our pace attack is nowhere near world class and faaar behind the quality of our sppin attack. Having said that, our dependency on spin is part of the reason why BD pacers can't properly develop. The captains (Understandbly) don't trust pacers in critical situations. I'm not saying, Shakib or ash should just give the last over to Rubel; but slowly starting to shift some responsibility to the pacers will help them mature and learn from match situations.

Now that Shakib is a captain and he's a spinner, I expect to see more 2 over spells from Rubel adn Shahadat. Maybe this spin only strategy will work for us in the short term, especially against some teams; but if we want to become a consistent performer in the internatinal arena, we'll need a much better balance between spin and pace. Rasel adn Rajib has not done enough to help themselves establish permanently in the team, Rubel is still young, and Mash? well mash is above all these criticism about pacers. But proper coaching and a little more faith can help the other 3 as well as newcomers like Doller mahmmod find theor comfort zones and fulfil their roles in the team.
