    The reverse is much harder surely.

    The reverse has happened a lot. Australia's most successful recent opening pair in the late 00s, Watson and Katich, were both middle-order players randomly pushed up to play as openers.

    He played as opener quite a bit in domestic cricket though IIRC.

    IMO if Davey isn't one of the leading run-scorers in the first few Shield rounds he loses his spot

    That’s crazy talk.

    Cupboard is bare and he’s had one bad series.

    Kohli would’ve been dropped after 2014 England with this sort of attitude.

    Only just read this https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_...-right-arm-you

    Warner has one of the biggest differentials between over the wicket and round the wicket average. Obviously a lot of that is Broad but it's also Archer and probably others in the past I can't think of. I wouldn't at all be surprised if he went back to Aus and piled on the runs, but teams will also be very alert to this as a tactic now. He'll have to do a lot of work on how he shapes up to that angle.

    He will plunder against Pakistan, who usually travel pathetically to Aus.

    If he can't score in the first 3 or so Shield rounds (potentially 6 innings) why would we pick him after this?

    Warner only gets 2 shield rounds before he plays the T20's vs Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Can see him do stuff all in shield, score lots in T20's, gets rested for the 4th round shield game to be fresh for the first test...


    ...unfortunately

    Haven't heard boo from Warner since the Ashes. Maybe he needs time away but would have been good taking the opportunity in the 50 over comp to score some runs. I don't even know if he's playing grade right now.

    He hasn't thus far. Not named this week for round two either.

    Sounds like he'll be opening against us for sure. Betting he'll ****ing bury us before Smith even gets a bat.
