He has only avraged 29 in his last 10 tests.
For a player who is so hoplessly defficiant of a good techneque against seam bowling I cant beleve he is an opener.
An interesting stat C4 brought up was that he averages 50 against Asian teams (with their mainly spin attacks) but only 30 against seam-dominated attacks, with not one hundred.
An opener who isn't comfortable against fast bowling - just what every team needs.
He is a quality batsman with heaps of talent but he really suck's outside offstump.
