    Be funny if it wasn't probably true.

    he swept alot. Looks like he can play.

    OTOH I didn't think Devcich was that bad, and Dernbach looks a good bowler to me so...

    He doesn't look remotely like a Test opener. Yet another middle order batsman.

    Elliott and Butler out of the first T20 with minor injuries. Neesham into the squad.

    Yeah and I don't see why anyone would be looking to a 2020 for test opening potential. They're pretty incompatible.

    I think there are signs that he could handle the role. I was quite impressed when he came out in the washed out game on Monday and looked very composed against Finn & Broad. I thought he looked more organised that Rutherford. Also, it is a position the selectors obviously see him having potential in - he scored a century opening against India A for NZ A in their 'test'.

    Obviously, it would help if he was opening for Canterbury rather than keeping & batting in the middle order.

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

    The two most important qualities in a test opener are judgement outside off and being able to defend under the eyes to the moving ball, both of which aren't really seen in t20.
