well ofcourse, he has a problem to get into grove but once he does he looks a top class batsman MMW. If you really have seen his big innings you will know his ability.
This guy has plenty of 50s and 100s in his name and ppl keep talking abt Naeem Islam who has won us only 1 match in 40 odd internationals and a pathetic 80 ball 55 when chasing a 290 score. And what happen in BPL stays in BPL, its not his fault was it that he was made the captain/Idol? And at least he had the balls to drop himself knowing that T20 is not his game. Maybe he wanted to give it a try, but he saw that he was upto the mark so he moved away b4 he made things any worse than for Barisal
I don't get why your comparing SN and Naeem. SN bats at #2 or #3 usually whereas Naeem bats at #7 or #8. So both have completely different roles and should not be compared.
SN just really shot himself in the foot. He came off a very impressive 97 against Pakistan and then just completely wilted in the DPL and BPL and rightfully lost his place at the #3 spot with the other top order batsmen outperforming him in domestics. If he wants to put his name up again, then he's going to have to score big runs in domestics again.
