Playing him at number 7 (or 8) is a waste. If he wants to stay in the test team, he should strive to bat (and perform) in the top order.....NCL will be a good start.
6/7/8 are crucial positions in tests. if they can strengthen one end, u won't get late wickets at the end of days play. imagine we had someone of weaker caliber, if we lost 2 kwik wickets in the last few nervous overs, we might have been done for.
