Yes, he hasn't done well in the last two matches, but please give someone a whole series before giving a verdict on him.
Now is not the good time to keep a dead wood. He didn't deserve the ODI call. And in the first ODI when he came to the crease WI was already in a defensive mindset and just didn't bowl aggressively, also he didn't score the 50 in convincing manner too. Played shots which lacked power, luckily for him went in the gaps. I know Rabz bhai why you are supporting Nayeem, one should be given ample opportunity ideally. But this is not ideal time, THIS IS WAR TIME!!!! I think to ensure the series win we shouldn't keep a batsman like him at no. 3. He will either be too defensive or just throw his wicket due to lack of shot making.
