tiger_army, Tamim scored a duck against the Dutch and still we won the match comfortably. We did not need Tamim to whitewash NZ. So, the myth that we can not score 150 without him is not true.

Against Ireland he threw his wicket away at a very bad time, we just lost two wickets and even if his role is just scoring a quickfire 30/40, he should not have got out at that situation.

We won against England because Imrul was solid at one end and because of that Shafiul miracle. With 225 to chase, we were never under the required run rate pressure, survival was the key. We were getting allout, not failing in rrr.

Certainly in our team we do not have many decent batsmen. Imrul Kayes, within his ability, is the most decent one. Shakib comes 2nd in the list.

Tamim is the most capable batsman that we have. That is why I would like to see him as a match-winner, not as a quickfire guy. He has the ability (that 153 against Zim) and therefore, he should do justice to his potential and to the team's need.
