If you aren't selecting bowlers you shouldn't be playing tests.
The thing with Bangladesh is though, if they selected their nine best batsmen they'd still be selecting two of their best five bowlers and a wicket keeper amongst those nine players. They've got a couple of batsmen who actually really seem to actually relish batting 7/8 too. Then they could pick another two bowlers on top of that. It's just a weird situation.
