They should bring in Shanto's U/19 teammate Zakir (only Bangladeshi batter to score 1k+ FC runs last year) in the squad as a backup to groom.
This is realy the first instance were Mominul has struggled when the rest of the lineup made runs. In NZ, he was amongst the runs and in SA most of the batsmen failed collectively. I'm talking about last 6 months of course.

Shanto doesn't need any alternative at this point because at the same stage (age 23, 15 matches) Liton averaged far less than Shanto's 28. But he was persisted with because the think tank saw something in him.

Otherwise you will end up with a situation like Mosaddek...Test average of 41 and first class average of 55 and yet can't get in the playing XI.
