it would be great for naeem to be in the team but imo he has to be played primarily as a batsman and there isn't really batsmen to drop atm.
ya, have same feeling about Nayeem. Its been almost two years of International cricket for Nayeem, still he has not score any half-century yet. One can argue that Nayeem has not got enough chances. Here lies the question, then why are we playing a batsman at that position where he is not getting chance to bat at all in 2 years time, rather just bowling few overs in match. We can always play a bowler there and get better service. Nayeem's batting skills is not an addition in our team anyway.

Promote Nayeem in the top order, play him as a batsman and see what he is capable of.
