Yeah riyad always doing just enough to stay in the team...it was a really good knock though, got the team over the line, now if he could be consistent with this that'd be great.

There's no denying currently he is in beast mode. Per Riyad's cricinfo page his recent scores in 50 over matches are:
46* (v NZ), 51 (v Ire), 43* (v NZ), 49 (v Ire A), 62 (v Sh Jamal), 49* (v Brothers), 77 (v PSC), 59 (v Khlaghor)

I am a big fan of Hathurusingha, and all he has done for the side. But putting Riyad up to 4 was a mistake.

He is a good finisher, and we could do with a player like him at 6 or 7. Not only good for chasing, but can also hit big ones when batting first.

Weren't ready to take him out from the team in NZ series? How about in the SLan series?

Now we have bevan in our ranks.

I think Riyad is doing a payback. I dont know to who but he is very quiet but kind of determined, you can almost see it from his body language. Didn't really celebrate the win yesterday too, it shows that he is hungry. I think in this CT he might do something extraordinary.

Riyad, if you are reading this, I know we will get some close matches this CT. You have the responsibility to close those games, I hope you learnt from the India WT20 Game. It might just come down to you, and look at it this way, you will have someone able to bat along this time. Maybe Miraz/Nasir. No excuses this time and bd needs you to deliver mate.

I think he is repaying Mashrafe's faith in him. Mash backed him at his bad time just like Mash is backing Shakib now.

These "paying back" and repaying are kind of funny. Riyad is a national playing playing for his own career, if anything he is "paying back: to himself, because he was having a lean period and very close to be dropped, now with this innings, he kind of not only got some breathing room, may be a platform to perform even something bigger near future.

There are few Riyad bind lover and few haters, but most of the fans care less... once he plays they expect him (and any other players) to play well and do well. We fans (most of us) praise a player's good performance and criticize a player's bad performance, that we do regardless who is that player.

But a player plays for his career, for his country (when playing for national team) and for his family. So at the end, there is no pay back, specially to the fan.

If someone gets 2 back-to-back centuries in the biggest event (WC) at no. 4 position, wouldn't you play him at the same role? Moreover, most of highest ODI innings came at No. 4.

Yes, he couldn't repeat his performance afterwards. It's his fault. In fact, he had a terrible time during our last 2 series. He started playing well again at his regular No. 7 which is a good thing for BAN, especially before CT.

Riyad in ODI at a glance:
122 innings, Avg: 33.9, SR: 75.5, 100s: 2, 50s: 17, 40s: 8, MoM: 4

That's a misleading table, obviously he'll have more 40+ scores at 4, at 6, 7 he often doesn't face enough balls

That wasn't misleading to Bangladeshis who follow cricket. I was simply stating the fact to reason why it wasn't a BIG mistake to play him at 4 after WC' 2015.

He didn't succeed, went through a bad-patch recently and now doing well again at No. 6 or 7. So, let him be.

His average at 4 is 50, he is our best batsmen, he should definitely be at four.

Mushy is the best batsman, out of anyone he is there most when needed.

Riyad has always had the talent which is what we saw in the WC but he's struggled ever since then and only just recently started to make some runs and play some meaningful innings.

He might just hang on because of experience and his ability to dominate an attack better than others e.g. Nasir and the youngsters nipping at his heels (liton, shanto, anamul, afif), but his consistency needs to improve.

It was a mistake imo, because of two reasons.

1) We are denying our best batsman the opportunity to bat there-Mushfiq. Number 4 is ideally suited for someone with solid technique, temperament. No one batter than Mushy for that role

2) Riyad has his moments. When he is in good nick he can deliver not matter what position. But then in the off moments he can be reckless. You would have also noticed he has a technical glitch-anything thats fired full, middle stump length.

6 or 7 suits him. You dont have to worry so much about defending, occupying crease, holding fort. You can play your natural game.

Well, I don't think it was a mistake to try him at No. 4 (same way I don't think trying Sabbir at No. 3 is a mistake). But I agree that Mushy is our best batsman in regards to technique and temperament. In that case, he should play at 3, not 4.

Mullah averages over 50 playing at No. 4. Who else has the average this high at 4? He delivered 2 of the best ODI innings BD players ever made in WC.

Mushy averages below 37 at No. 4. However, he has been our most consistent batsman since 2014. And I think he plays spin slightly better. If we send him at No. 3 and we lose both Tamim and Mushy early, it will be a big blow down the order. Hence, I want Mushy to play at 4. But I wouldn't mind playing Mushy at 3 if Mullah can be productive again at 4. Only problem we will face is not having another dependable batsman down the order (Shakib, Sabbir & Mosa). Eventually, Mosa will be such type and this would be ideal provided Mullah maintains 40+ average at 4:

1. Tamim (big innings)
2. SS (free-flowing)
3. Mushy (best technique)
4. Mullah (dependable and cool headed)
5. Shakib (unexplained)
6. Mosa (plays according to match situation)
7. Sabbir (power hitter)
8 - 11: Tale-enders

But this is not going to happen. For now, Mullah is back in runs playing at 6 or 7. So, we're just happy about it.

ICC ODI event, clutch player. Has to bat higher in such conditions. In, AUS, NZ, England. Muhammad Mahmudullah Riyad suits best within top 4!
