the difficulty i have with nazimuddin is that he has one positive, which is he's performed consistently in the NCL for many years. but with that one positive comes many worries in that his technique is pretty horrible and even though they aren't test cricket his overall performance in the international arena suggests he doesn't have what it takes to be successful at the highest level, but then you look at his specific test record and he's been ok. also his NCL record has mainly been compiled in the middle order and he's been selected as an opener in tests/international cricket.

on one hand i'm thinking to myself there is no way he will survive in tests because of his technique and his t20I and ODI records. on the other hand i'm saying he's been one of the most consistent NCL performers for years and his FC record is clearly better than his record in the shorter formats.
