Ideal ODI player that way, batting between 5 and 7.

Having said that, he has a tendency to play premeditated and low percentage shots when either bogged down or rushed. Both will happen in T20Is as well as tests. I think ODIs should be the gateway format for him, and once he gains experience there and learns from them, he can be considered for tests and T20Is.
understand that t20s isn't ideal for shuvagata, but if he can get his foot in the door it could lead to ODIs. i agree though, ideally he plays the one-dayers then moves from there.
