Tamim not Test player

From the way Tamim batted on the second day of the Bangladesh-West Indies Test, it has become very much clear that he lacks the temperament to play the longer version of cricket. No doubt, he is good for one-day cricket as well as for T-20 cricket, but not for the Test cricket. He has already played quite a good number of Test crickets 24 in number but yet could not learn the essence of it. It seems he will never learn it. So next time when the Bangladesh cricket bosses will select a Test cricket team, they must think twice before choosing Tamim. If playing only flamboyant shots is his style, then well and good. But he must not play Test cricket. We may not win, but we may at least draw a Test. After twelve years of achieving Test status, if we still say we are learning, that is not acceptable any more.
