He has a really solid technique and temperament which you need to have if you want to be successful in international cricket. Also he's got an aggressive mindset. He constantly looks for singles and hits a lot of boundaries. His next step is to be more consistent so that he can block others from getting the #3 spot and make it his own. I'm hoping he can continue the good work because it's been a spot we've had a lot of problems with.
He was actually dropped BEFORE losing his form after a decent tour of UK. At the end of the UK tour he was benched the whole NZ series, and then he was out of the squad. That really messed him up.

I've been rooting for him to open with Tamim over Imrul ever since he scored that 170 in a WU game. But I guess he can bat at 3 as well. And he doesn't really have a solid technique at all imo. He mostly plays on the leg side. He doesn't have a good balance.
