Yeah it's just one match but that actually gives you the indication of sort of form he is in. Look at his bowling in the NCL, he was worst among all the spinners played those innings. He couldn't manage to get more than 2 wickets there, even those 2 wickets must have been a gift from the batsmen and see he was the same with the ball in the real match. Ineffective and expensive at times. So I'm not hopeful about his batting either as he showed the glimpse of what sort of mindset he is in. So don't expect too much from him. Let's just pray and hope that he will help us to avoid the follow on first. Porerta pore dekha jabe. I hope he plays session by session and just be patient to survive. I will be more than happy if he survives till lunch break, don't care whether he scores a 100 or not.
