That's a catch twenty two, isn't it? It's been 13 years and we could not figure out our top order. Tamim does not even have a set opening partner, there's no set one down batter either. So Riyad's position is pretty set.

Now the question is should he be batting up the order? I don't believe so. He's been doing very well along with Nasir in the late order. What we need to do is groom Anamul, Mominul and possibly Marshall Aiyub and pick the better 2 for the to order solution and hope for the best.
