should stop judging players for tests by how they go in ODIs and the other way round.
the two forms are very different and they require different skills-set.
(partly why batsmen who excel in both forms tend to be rated higher. you can't be considered a complete batsman if you can't do well in both)

However, there are certain things which are universal across formats..temperament being one. For example..Umar Akmal, guy lacks the temperament to play a knock in an ODI game..surely he doesn't have that for Test cricket..
For Sharma, its not about skill-set..he has all the shots in the book, he has that lazy elegance and time of Inzy as someone pointed..what he lacks is temperament..and he is not a newbie anymore..he has been playing international cricket for quite some time now..
