So far he has a good start to his Test career, but those who have seen him play a lot more then what I have (what are the wickets like for his county?), so does he have what it takes to pick up wickets against the Australians? I guess being a finger spinner and all that it can be a lot harder to pick up wickets if there isn't enough turn (unless your Murali, but he is more of a wrist spinner so to speak) and would be fodder to Ricky Ponting and his men (and if he bowls to Phil Hughes, he will look to smash him out of the ground, like he went after Paul Harris).
With Monty Panesar's Test prospects looking bleak for the time being and with the need to play a spinner for 'variety' reasons, I think he will play in the Tests (unless he bowls like ****). So my question is do you think he can be succesful in the Ashes and would you pick him in the first place?
