I agree. Compare to Tamim, Jessie's batting looks elegant. Here are some possible reasons (not excuses). 1) Tamim is not a natural Left Handed person - so his shots takes a lot more effort - like Ganguly 2) Jessie is much bigger and powerful plus have exquisite timing - therefore his shots look effortless. 3) Tamim's strength is hitting when given width. He is not good when you bowl towards his body or at the stumps. therefore his batting looks ugly as his slashes and misses close-to-body balls. (another similarity with Ganguly)

On the other hand, I must say, some of the sixes hit by Jessie will not be approved by our Shamim Chowdhury as he doesn't move his feet at all.
