Bangladesh have looked a bit off color in the last couple of years or I'd say after the World Cup, not taking credit away from. West Indies, of course they played brilliantly, but I have to say Bangladesh were not very good in this series as they usually are at home.

They have beaten the likes of England and Australia on home tracks.

Good summary, I still think Shanto will be a failure at first drop, especially if they keep persisting with him in the early parts of his career. He'd be better suited down at 5 or 6 for now, I'd be making him and Mushy swap
Mushy batting at 3 would have the added benefit of breaking the chain of 4 consecutive lefties at 1-4. However, Mushy seems reluctant to bat in the top 4. That would be the only black spot on his career for me. He's always preferred to hide down at 5 or lower. We really needed Mushy batting at 3 or 4 around 2010. But I think he's OK at 5 now with Mominul at 4, and Shanto the incumbent #3. I actually fully support the BCB putting Shanto at #3 in Tests and ODIs and it seems they want him to take a leadership role. Good proactivity because the Big 3 of Tamim, Shakib, Mushy won't be around forever (I hope Tamim and Mushy can still bat on in Tests for at least another 5-6 years given their work ethic and fitness). Shakib I suspect will call it quits very soon, at least from Tests, as he practically lives in the US now.

Point #6 from my previous 5-point "plan":

BD team needs to play intra-squad red ball games (3 or 4 dayers) before a potential Test series vs Sri Lanka in April. All they did was play a couple of white ball tournaments before the WI series. Could learn a thing or two from ZC on how to arrange a red ball practice game.
