Same issue there - playing a very capable top/middle order batsman way too low down the order (#8) for years and expecting 50s and 100s.

Dont get me wrong. I also wish well for Naeem. But I saw him live in Oval, London playing against a Surrey reserve side and struggling hopelessly. If my memory serves me right, it took him 33 balls to get off the mark blocking fulltosses, half-vollies and then got out horribly. I wasnt very impressed at all by his technique. I'm not totally convinced yet, either. Lets wait and see. But hope he flourish and become the batter to your reckoning.
