the fact is you might think NZ are a "weak" team but Gayle barely done better against them than Powell did, which is why he will rightly keep his place and i fully expect him to do well in this tour.
And in closing Barath scored a ton on his debut and then went downhill, while Powell started off bad and is now improving, so comparing them is a little naive imo.
no offense but Powell looks like a terrible player, as bad as most of our batsmen which is not a compliment. Should invest in better players for test matches.
