    32 really isn't a terrible average for a keeper tbf.

    He's mostly played as a specialist bat though.

    I don't think this really matters much. It's not so much that wicket keeping reduces your batting average as it is that you don't need to be as good a batsman if you're playing as a wicket keeper.

    If he was a good gloveman then a First Class batting average of 32 that has climbed in recent seasons combined with an obvious high ceiling would be enough to put him right into contention IMO, regardless of whether he made those runs keeping or not. His glovework is pretty average at this point though so he need to either improve on that a bit or apply himself with the bat more to be an attractive package as a keeper/bat for Tests.

    No way you could have dropped him after he would have piled on about 4 hundreds this summer. Won't get a better time than now to use the "cancer in the dressing room" argument.

    Anyway SL has a chance to pants England in a couple of months.

    I've tried to work it out before and it seems like he doesn't even have twitter, or at least doesn't follow the people he always posts about.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    tried to use Twiangulate: analyzing the connections between friends and followers to find some common followers for tweets he's posted in the past once. got nowhere though.

    Problem with Panesar is there's no guarantee he'd turn up sober or otherwise.
