As I keep saying it's a nearly always a waste of time looking at career averages for looking at county players who could possibly play for England. He's a rapidly improving batsman, and so his early averages were awful and even last season he batted at 7 sometimes which isn't his position and won't help. He ended up averaging 25 in List A cricket last season at a SR of over 100. He's averaging over 50 from just the two games this season at a SR of just under 100. His seasonal average will get better and he's only 24. Obviously you don't know how he'll perform in ODIs until he's picked - Geraint, Prior and Read have hardly done brilliantly even with some of them having a good county record and having a wicket-keeper who opens and attacks like Mustard (and who's left handed) would be very good for England's balance.
