With Naeem's discipline, technique and temperament, it would not be the worst thing (since the next test is in Khulna). A top order consisting of Nafees and Junaid does not make a lot of sense!

Also, guys, check out the first class batting average of some of the current players. If you can't bat for a longer period of time in domestic games, how can you do that consistently in tests?

Case in point (as of 19/11/12):

Junaid Siddique - FC Average 28.29, Test Average 26.18

Mohammad Ashraful - FC Average 28.37, Test Average 22.60

Mushfiqur Rahim - FC Average 29.44, Test Average 29.03

Raqibul Hasan - FC Average 28.75, Test Average 19.76

Imrul Kayes - FC Average 26.37, Test Average 17.15

Now compare them with:

Naeem Islam - FC Average 41.07, Test Average 36.18

Shakib Al Hasan - FC Average 34.50, Test Average 35.12

Tamim Iqbal - FC Average 44.13, Test Average 38.02

Nasir Hossain - FC Average 34.40, Test Average 36.22

Mahmudullah Riyad - FC Average 33.40, Test Average 31.45

also he is very effective off spin bowler for bangladesh , he got 24 wickets in 13 test match, he couldn't ball that much in this test bcz of gazi , but surely he did great job in the past and he proved his capabilities as a bowler , i mean all together he is great asset that bangladesh has at this moment
