    I am surprised that he does not use his height for his advantage. Where is that well directed short pitch bowling, which could be very beneficial in these condition since he has a massive advantage of height and gets his wrist behind the ball.

    I understand he is very new to this level, but is it not a job of coaching staff to teach this kid?

    He’s too young yet, He’s good but he’s not quite there, pace can go up and as a bowler he needs to figure out what’s good for him.

    because hes learning the game in the hardest format in arguably one of the hardest settings. cut him some slack, hes a small glimmer of sunshine in a seriously gloomy tour.

    Because his action falls away too early due to his weak frame.

    Don't see much special there.
    Just a tall average paced guy. Nothing else about him. Doesn't really swing it much. Doesnt reverse it. Doesn't have a good bouncer or yorker. For countries like SA, Eng, NZ and Aus he's just another bowler. They have 10 others similar to him

    Patience, my friend... he has displayed the ability to execute all the things you mentioned, but doing it in different conditions is what has to be learned. Plus, his body is not strong enough at the moment, which is why his pace has been down from the last match.

    The training regime for fast bowlers is clearly not working.
    Too much emphasis on cardiovascular fitness, which is making these guys shed muscle and lose strength overtime.
    A big clue is the loss of pace for Amir.
