I know this was his first game and I know Tamim was a blind slogger when he started and I know he got the job done, but for all the hype surrounding him, he didn't look any more than ordinary.
Agree. I was disappointed with his technique. But even in the early days of blind slogging, Tamim had some solid technique. His 50 vs India in WC 2007 had some glorious textbook shots.
We think Shakib/Nasir don't use feet much? Anamul makes them look like dancers compared to him. But I will give him some time and see how he adapts. Too early to tell
