I think James Marshall could be a bolter for the England tour...arguably he's a better batsmen than Hamish because he's scored more centuries & also a double.
If he works the same way as Hamish does (believing that they're more comfortable at international level because they like the pressure) then he could be very good...and as far as fielding is concerned, he's pretty much equal ability to Hamish.
as much as I'd like to see that happen, I don't think he'd make selection as a specialist opener unless he got selected in the 'A' Team and had a blinder..........
firstly I'd like to see Hamish get a recall to the Test Squad, both as a reward for his ODI form and in recognition of his only Test in RSA.........
