His batting style can be compared to a lesser technically correct Rakibul with a lower strike rate and less attacking shots.

He plays the drive pretty well against decent seamers and works the ball around with spinners, which is why he is more ideal in the middle order in an ODI, he is there to rotate the strike and keep his wicket.

His technique at the moment means it would be suicidal to expose him to the new swinging ball.
