I repeat - he played well and deserves the applause and so do you for sticking with him as a fan.
But sorry I can't compare Tamim with SN. The two are miles apart. SN was a good player years ago but now he has just lost it. Look at the way he struggled in tests vs WI. If he scores few more 50s in BPL, then only and only then selectors should consider him for SL tour. Otherwise, there are many more players waiting in the sideline.
