Good to see our Mr. Fifty 2.0 finally score a . Hopefully the first of many
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)

Compared to Tamim's, Ryder's hits were clean. I am not sure if the upload only has Ryder's selective clean hits or not but most of Tamim's shots were more power then technique or timing. He looked pretty ugly in playing most of his shots, especially toward the end of that inning as he was gradually getting tired.
It baffles be to see a young man like him gets so tired playing a short inning in a T20. May be smoking and now possibly drinking (assuming Ryder is his buddy) could be part of the reason. We may see a more rounded Tamim coming back from NZ.

Chill man....nobody is accusing him of anything that he doesn't do. To be fair I do not care what he does on his own and in his personal time but as an athlete if his personal choices impact his ability to be all that he can be and has a negative impact on BD national team, I definitely have an issue.

I agree. Compare to Tamim, Jessie's batting looks elegant. Here are some possible reasons (not excuses). 1) Tamim is not a natural Left Handed person - so his shots takes a lot more effort - like Ganguly 2) Jessie is much bigger and powerful plus have exquisite timing - therefore his shots look effortless. 3) Tamim's strength is hitting when given width. He is not good when you bowl towards his body or at the stumps. therefore his batting looks ugly as his slashes and misses close-to-body balls. (another similarity with Ganguly)
On the other hand, I must say, some of the sixes hit by Jessie will not be approved by our Shamim Chowdhury as he doesn't move his feet at all.
