He shouldn't and he will never remind you a Sakib or tamim even in the best possible scenario. Abul is a FB and Sakib is an (spinner) all-rounder and Tamim is a pure batsman.
In a best case scenario, he may remind us a mashrafee in making. But if he doesn't and he flops big time with no sign of improment and promise...then no harm done.... at some point you cut loss and you realize he may not be ready for prime time and move on with another youngster in the waiting line. In my opinion that's how you search and find the next gem. FB can come and shine early in their lifetime where as it takes time for a spinner to shine and dominate. ofcourse there are always some exceptions.
