    Yeah I tend to think you can start off a new top order batsman at 6 and then move them up when you think they're ready. But after they've moved up, that's it. Can't go back to 6 unless they're out of the side for a while (like Flynn).

    In the subcontinent I might pick him ahead of Bracewell.

    He cannot be selected ahead of Patel at the moment. It just wouldn't be a fair selection.

    Well aside from KW, the number 3s around the country as of last round were;

    Reece Young
    James Marshall
    Carl Cachopa
    Stephen Murdoch
    Shanan Stewart
    Michael Bracewell

    So yeah, Williamson stays for the time being. Only one of those guys has staked a claim and he isn't a fan of the short ball, so taking him to SA would be a brave move.

    Interview by heath mills on Radio sport today was a must listen for a NZ fan. I will see if I can find a link.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Would almost certainly take Williamson to SA. If he fails AND is playing poorly then hopefully Ryder is back for the England tour, at which point I'd suggest Taylor moves up to 3 and can bring someone else in at 4.

    Can't believe you let someone from ND ton up, especially since you're an ND bowler and therefore good. Kill yourself.
