A person on another board raised an interesting point, which I'd like to get some opinions on here.
With Phil Jaques in super form at the moment, after hitting two tons against the English and piling on runs in England and Australia, I'm not sure that preventing him from getting a game 'because he's an opener' is the right call.
Shane Watson gets injured, and Michael Clarke comes in, someone who hasn't exactly been banging down the door for a test spot like Jaques has.
So what do the other CW members think? Is it wrong for batsmen to be pigeon holed as a certain type of player, when they are clearly the next best thing?
