Granted, I'm of the school that ODI performances shouldn't have too much impact on selection on other forms of the game, but the fact that he's performed so well in international cricket should be a factor in my opinion.
If it was just
his ODI performances, I wouldn't be in favour of picking him at all, but his First Class performances over a long period put him right up there. He doesn't have a great Test record but I think he could be really useful on the subcontinent at very least. Should be in India right now IMO - not because of his ODI performances, but because of his FC performances and ability to both swing the new ball and bowl very effective cutters with the old one.
