Rutherford, again from what I've seen, looks inconsistent and his technique doesn't appear to be fantastic. I'm guessing he's a bit of a confidence player - if he makes a start he'll keep going, but if the bowler picks up on the holes in his technique, he'd be gone early. Like an opening version of Marcus North.
Bang on re Rutherford. If he gets on top it's carnage.
