But since you got the chance to observe him as a coach so do you think he is adept at playing short pitch bowling? Also in Africa T20's he really struggled against fast bowling, do you agree with that observation?
He's just a kid - with a ton of talent. He will work it out. Give people time to be great. There's a need in BD to rush them along and then discard them. Anamul could be a special player if he can get his head space right.

Good with the gloves, too. Mushy beware...
