His game is based on reflexes and quick eye. Being out of shape probably had some effect on his game. That all can be corrected. Quality is there. He seemed a little vulnerable to balls pitching on offstump and jagging in a bit.
Yes that's true, regarding fitness I think subcontinental players have less commitment compared to the other nations. Hussey after his injury (hamstring) still maintained his fitness. The aussies players despite injuries maintain a high intensity of training in the gym, Imran Khan still trains as a 59 yr old.
Tamim isn't the traditional left hander that moves across to cover his off stump which helps him with his off side shots but he does leave a large gap between bat and pad-that being said so does sehwag. I don't think he needs to change his style more so the fact you mentioned with his hand-eye coordination.
