you can only select on potential for so long.
That's what seperates Tamim from Watson - age. From Watson's experience he should have learned from his mistakes now. TIme and time again he just plants his foot out and continually get dismissed LBW. He should be a matured cricketer by now and learn what to do. But it seems like he is not willing to learn. Allan Border was hammering Watson for this quite recently. Watto will be one of the most wasted talents in World Cricket if he doesn't up his game now. Has all the potential in the world to be as good as Amla, De Villiers, Sachin, Ponting etc. His biggest crime is not fulfilling his potential.
