Default The tactical error of 5 left handed batsman in the top 5

Who comes up with this farce. Their best spinner is Lyon who is an offie. Don't you want to have a right handed Batsman to counter that?

Also LR combination forces the field to change and bowlers have to change lines. It's a common tactics used by teams to switch the batting order.

Already 3 of the lefties got out to Lyon.

Move Nasir/Mosaddek to No. 3 is one of the solution. Drop Kayes

Not sure why we are playing both Imrul and Soumya... Having Mominul as first down (instead of Imrul) and Liton as wicket keeper later down the order would have made more sense. This would have allowed Mushy to focus more on batting and captaincy as well. Poor team selection.

Have to agree with this one. Utterly moronic. I still don't understand why someone of Mushy's calibre bats beyond top 4. Even with this silly team lineup, Soumya, Imrul or Mominul should've been pushed down the order. May not have the right team but at least arrange the order to maximise outpute.

I think we should pick Litton and make him open. That way our team would be:

Tamim
Liton
Momin
Mosa
Shakib
mushfiq
Nasir
Miraz

momin avg 64 @ 4..his downward spiral came when he was moved to 3. lets see how he does in this match @ 4, if he scores I would suggest let him bat @ 4

kayes avg 47 in last 2 years @ 2, I will give him his position back and make liton number 3

If you can bat at 4 you can bat 3 if you have good technique against pace. Mushy is not the best against swing that's why he doesn't bat at 3 but mini is better against pace so I think he can bat at 3.

Your best Batsman should be at 3. But if mini is to be at 4 then Litton Should be at 3.

Tamim
Soumya
Litton
Mini
Shakib
Mushy
Mosaddek

If this is true, then he should definitely be at number 4. I just wonder if it really makes difference between 3 and 4 spot? Or is this just a matter of he happened to be in form when he played at number 4 at that time?

I am not arguing that mini cant bat at 3, he scored 100 at 3 as well but he was a beast @ 4. and he is struggling @ 3. why would you try to tamper with something which is working so well. he was our 1st genuine 50+ batsman. you don't mess with that

Mushy doesn't have the technique or temperament to play when the ball moves around. The match against NZ was an example.

He is better when the ball gets soft. Always brilliant against spin

3 lefties gone to Lyon. One lefty in the middle.

How does haturi deal with this? Send in another lefty. Woah! Genius.

I mean, we had Liton but he is unfortunate enough to choose to be a WK in his career....

Another problem would be that our bottom 6 has no left handed bat. Agar and o Keefe would reign supreme.
.

Shocking isn't it that we don't have lower order lefty batsman.

All the more reason why someone like Saifuddin is so crucial.

5 of the 6 wickets taken by Lyon. Such a brilliant decision to play 5 lefties at a stretch. Now we don't have any lefty to counter o keefee and agar

I'd go with

Tamim
Imrul/Sarkar
Mominul
Mushfiq
Shakib
Mossadek
Litton wk
Mehedi
Taijul
Roy/Taskin
Mustafizur

Still 4/5 left handed, but forcing players out of position in not the way forward

I don't understand why imrul got moved he finally settled and started performing, but no let's f him up to fit coaches favourite player at his position that he wants, why not try Sarkar at 3 if he wanted him in the team

He should be in the test XI whether he keep wickets or not. Having a second keeper in the squad is always good in a test match. In case one gets injured the other can take his place. When it happens to be that the backup keeper in the lineup is also a good batsman then it makes more sense to have him in the squad.

tamim LH
liton RH
mominul LH
shanto LH
Mushy RH
shakib LH
sabbir RH
Mehedi RH
Taijul/jubair/saifuddin
Taskin
Fizz/hider

If saifuddin is in there then he could bat where mehedi bats depending on how good he gets his batting and he's a lefty so that's another option. its pretty evenly balanced with left/rights.
