I have long advocated for the need of more lefties from BD in modern game. They do have an edge in advantage. I am pleased that more and more lefties are emerging in BD. Our top three are lefty now , and along with Sakib, we have four in top six. That is plenty, anymore, and our advantage will become a disadvantage. It will allow the bowlers to settle in their rhythm without too many left-right combination. BD pacers also struggle against lefty batsmen. As you have pointed out, most bowlers are right handed, and the angle of delivery allows a lefty like Tamim to play more fluently outside off. It is a necessity, and no longer a need for lefties in modern game, and I am glad we have at least some promising players in that regard.
