TBH, given some of the test batting line ups Bollinger's faced so far in his career, QLD's is probably at least on a par.
Aside from the obvious point that it's non-test form that invariable leads to a player's initial call up, whether that form is in FC, ODIs or what have you. FC form arguably the best guage of potential for tests too, although (hey Graeme!, hey Mark!) not always.
