He got dropped because after that great innings against Australia, he failed to score a half century in his last 9 innings. In that period of time, he averaged only a 14.5 with a SR of a 57. With those statistics he compiled, it's completely understandable that he got dropped. The way he was scoring his runs, he was eventually going to do poorly. The biggest thing is that he just hasn't improved on his weaknesses. Had he done that, different story but not the case. Now since Anamul has taken the spot, Imrul could have a difficult time coming back. If he wants to come back, he really needs to tighten up his game outside the off stump and rotate the strike much better. Even when he had good innings, he was too sluggish in rotating the strike and often lost the momentum of the innings.
