Won't make any difference he hasn't the technique or patience for Test Matches. Great 1 day players don't necessarily make great Test players.

Time to give this guy a go.

He's in good form and can bat a long time.

And what if he fails after a few test matches?.

Then we look again. Only one way to find out whether players are up to it.

If you are going to pick new openers you have to give them a good long run and have faith in them coming good.

In which time we've lost the Ashes again. Promising youngsters are getting blocked out by central contracts. Tendulkar made his Test debut at 16, he'd have been waiting 8 years longer in this country !

Re: English Cricket

Actually England's best chance of winning here is to get bowled out cheaply, giving enough time for Archer to destroy them tomorrow. It's all a cunning plan I should think. Unfortunately it's also their best chance of losing, what a wonderful game!
