Richards and Barath both deserve opportunities ahead of Phillips. In that order too. I can easily see Morton opening with Gayle if the players return next Test though.
Phillips looked good for the most part, but on the whole was too loose. And unlike Phillip Hughes, he doesn't have enough natural talent to score shedloads despite being loose. He needs to tighten up his game and move his feet more, because yes he scored 94, but it was on a flat track against half of a poor attack.
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
