Tamim actually looked quite good on instances today, but for the most part of his innings, he was restless. Well, his restlessness can be attributed to lack of experience. Also, I don't think he faced this kind of wicket in his life before (before the England match), so I am willing to cut him some slack here. I still think Tamim is, technique-wise, the best opening batsman in our side.
