Just as you said, there's a huge gap in quality between NCL and International level and until I see someone personally cannot speak of their caliber.
But who do you see Dhiman's batsmanship can topple in the current batting line up in Test? Forget one day; I think for ODI Mushy is fine since prices are higher to pay in tests than ODI's when one makes a mistake so it would be advisable to have a better keeper in tests.
Tbh, I do not see Nayeem's place in any team of our teams. Though he played gem of a inning (I believe it was a fluke) in the first test. But he's very limited and can be exposed once opponent figures him out which is why he was out playing stupid shots match after match. I think he should be replaced with Anamul who proved that he can bat for a long time though he too is technically questionable but far superior to MOKKA (not Mecca) Nayeem.
