A cricket team sans pacers—really?

I congratulate the Bangladesh National Cricket Team for winning the test series against the West Indies. One must admit that Bangladesh's spin attacks in both the matches were lethal, leading to the collapse of the batting order of the opponent.

Yet, I wonder why the Bangladesh team did not have a single pacer in the squad. While Bangladesh tried to take home advantage as well as make use of a spin-friendly pitch, I found the team's reliance entirely on spinners to be highly unsporting. Also, they didn't seem to take account of the fact that the pitch conditions could change anytime.
