I've seen him bat a couple of the ODIs. In the final ODI, he was looking so reluctant to get to the middle! He had that "amare keno ghum theke uthaise shalara" look on his face. But boy...did he surprise me!

First the negatives - plays uppish shots at times, temperament issues at times...seems like a slow runner...and seems so reluctant to play and win the game (may be that's just the way he looks). On top of it all, he's still a raw talent...needs to adjust to the big stage situation and just hit the ball into the fielders' hands (like he's done a couple of times).

Positives - pulls the ball with comfort and style. It looks like he can play slow and build an inning (like the last ODI) and has got good footwork for defensive shots. I noted a few more positives when I was watching the game, but can't recall what they were. In other words, I was quite impressed.

He needs a lot of grooming - good find.
