Mashrafi, Rajib, Rafiq - should have bowling responsibility
Farhad, Saqib, Aftab, Rajin should have 20 overs within them
Bashar, Nafees, Ashraful - should have main batting responsibility
Pilot - has the wicket keeping responsibility
Formula in short - 3 bowlers, 3 batsmen, 4 all rounder, 1 wk. We may see in Modern ODIs one day that 2 wk are being used in order to utilise him as either 4th batsman or even 4th bowler exchanging wk position between them!! It's all about multi tasking in ODIs in present days!!!

Therefore, if the question is 4 vs 5 bowlers - the formula above shows we go for 7 bowlers (if we don't use Ashraful leggie at all).
