    And he can bat and field as well

    IMO, he is definitely one of the 13 best cricketers in OZ (and that's all being in the test squad entails) because it's not how, it's how many
    Yeah definitely especially with injuries affecting other contenders.

    No, which is odd given that he first came to attention through consistently beating batsmen in the flight in T20s.

    Agree with social that Smith looks a more talented leggie on what we've seen so far, even if Ahmed is more accurate.

    Which might explain the bowling figures to a degree but then you would also have to inflate his 30 batting average

    There's no doubting he's a talent, is he the new Nathan Bracken?

    I made the same comment about him 3 years ago. Forkers Faulkner is without doubt a better short form Cricketer than Test Cricketer but that doesn't mean he shouldn't be in the mix as far as Tests are concerned.

    Nathan was a given a bit of a hiding by the Indians if I remember. But at the time I thought he deserved his chance, just a shame for him that it was a very hot summer and the pitches were flat. AND I think McGrath and Warne were injured.

    He is interesting. A big, strong tall lad who is half a yard quicker than you expect. He has the building blocks and genes of a quick. Just need to see if he has the skills to compliment to turn him into a good one. There isnt a guarantee that he will develop them but there is promise.

    Yeah, the rush onto the bat was what I noticed too. Reckon sideways movement is less important if you have that. Would hate to see him try to be a swing bowler right now.

    Very useful one day player, not sure he is needed in tests with Watson in the side as you don't need two fourth seamers in the same side but will be a handy replacement long term. Is his batting going to improve enough for him to bat at 6 or 7 though?
