This would be my XI for last two matches:

Naim
Liton
Shakib
Mushfiq
Mithun
Mosaddek
Afif
Riyad/Sabbir
Saifuddin
Taskin/Rahi
Rony

Shakib needs to learn to trust his pacers. At the same time, he needs to let Fizz go if Fizz is not 100% fit by next match.

Taijul's selection as a specialist spinner has not added any benefit, I would take another pacer in his place. Shakib has plenty of other spin choices in Afif, Mosaddek, and Riyad.

Soumya is long overdue for a permanent drop from the T20I team (he could not even hold on to his place in his BPL team last season). My wildcard choice would be Naim, based on his recent List-A success (amount of runs scored as well as high SR), even though he does not have whole lot of experience in T20.

We can't afford two selfish players playing for their own survival only - one from Riyad and Sabbir has to go. I would bring in Mithun, given MIthun is one of our best batsmen against spin.
