Dilshan was once a middle order player who didn't shine much but once he moved to opening slot he was a different player, the management need to stop looking for certain players to open only and push mosaddek or Shanto up the order to give them enough balls to play, the opening position grants them more freedom to express their talent than coming in at number 6 or 7 trying to score quick runs
I like the idea. However, instead of taking a chance with a rookie (especially if that rookie is Mosaddek, with a poor reputation against pacers), I think the management should try out one of the experienced batsman like Mushfiq, Mahmudullah, or even Momin.
