He has a strike rate of over 85 and an average of 45. If Dhawan plays in the match, Rahul can be fielded in the middle order. He has batted in the middle order before and has done brilliantly.
The Bangladesh team will have the opening pair of Liton Das and Anamul Haque. It will be interesting to see who will bat at number three. Although Shakib can get this responsibility. Whereas wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim can bat at number four and Mahmudullah at number five. Mustafizur Rahman will lead the pace attack in the team, in which he will be supported by Ibadat Hussain and Hasan Mahmood. The responsibility of the spin attack will be in the hands of Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan. Both will also be seen in the role of all-rounders.
