i actually think it is good that they've pretty much made it clear that marshall is in line for the #3 spot, so now marshall knows that's going to be his spot, hopefully they don't shuffle him around the order so he can get a good feel and adjust to test level and the #3 spot. also by saying marshall is in line for #3 they are pretty much telling anamul we are pushing you as an opener so he also knows what his role is to be, it's also telling naeem and mominul to prepare for the #4 position.

it seems that they are managing the batsmen quite well atm, for the bowlers i think it's pretty obvious robiul is considered as the spearhead of the attack and rightly so at this point. if sohag does play they are sending the message that he is the first pick spinner (considering shakib as an all rounder).
Exactly. I think selectors could tell that Nazim wasn't international material so that was the right call to cut him off early for guys like Anamul, you have to give them a run before cutting them off.
