    Watson averages 46 as an opener.

    Watson's performances as an opener haven't been good enough.

    Yes they have, they haven't been amazing, but it's the middle order not capitalising on his platform that makes it seem like he isn't doing his job.

    An average of 46 is certainly good enough. He was averaging 50 just before the last series, even.

    The suggestion that Watson hasn't performed well as an opener isn't based in reality IMO. Could be better elsewhere, but is more than fine as an opener.

    I wasn't talking about his average, I was talking about his performances. Retaining an average of 50 by getting starts and throwing them away to stupid shots when you've got a piss weak middle order isn't performing well.

    I'm with GingerFurball on this one, Watson seems to be one of the few Australian batsman capable of surviving when it's moving around a bit, along with Katich and Hussey. His average would be higher was it not for the last of higher scores to boost it. Yes his inability to capitalise is a worry, but 46 as an opener certainly isn't the worst average by a long shot. Some of his shot selection suggest perhaps too much limited overs cricket maybe? Thoughts? He does play all 3 versions of the game and does so at a world class level, but maybe with the amount being played, it's inevitable that the mind can get confused with wanting to dominate.

    The first sentence of your post is totally contradicted by the rest.

    Wicked, good watch. Mail looked like he might have had a bit of potential back then (albeit as a bit of a stonewaller) but never kicked on. How poor were The saffies?
