Given the fact that Tamim's opening partners could not score runs playing proper cricketing shots even if their life depend on it, I suggest let Soumya given a role to do Jayasuriya regardless of match situation and pitch condition. Even if he clicks 5 out of 10 times then we would be better served.

Imrul Kayes should come at 3.

This is my playing XI for WC2019.

1) Tamim Iqbal ( to play like Tamim Iqbal)
2) Soumya Sarker (to play like Sanath Jayasuriya, regardless)
3) Imrul Kayes v.2 (the best top order batsman statistically since 2015 except Tamim)
4) Musfiqur Rahim ( The best player at 4)
5) Sakib Al Hasan
6) Mahmudullah Riyad ( He should not bat lower than 6 to maximize his potential)
7) TBD (To be determined based on BPL 2019, but not mosaddek as he has no power game and not the same player after his eye injury)
8) Mehedy Miraz ( this kid is still improving fast)
9) Mashrefe Mortaza (I wish him best of luck for his final Hurrah)Z
10) Rubel Hussain (For his extreme pace)
11) Mustafizur Rahman ( to fizzle out the opponents)

Thank you !
