his defense against the raw pace of bresnan, shahzad, anderson on swinging and seaming balls was solid. he was never troubled when those guys targeted his stumps. solid defense or push every time.
however when he played a bit expansively as the situation called for, he survived 3 plays and misses, and sliced one to deep backward point.
nonetheless, he has real potential because he has a cool head, and because he can defend. all he needs is to learn a proper drive shot and he can be decent. hooks/pulls and cuts are more natural shots that he can just work on in the nets.
Bangladesh is a stronger team with Shakib al Hasan.
