That's the point. In test cricket opening is a real tough job. No doubt #2 and #3 in test cricket is far more different. This is not O D I. Tendulker and Ganguly were world famous opener in O D I, still they did not feel easy at top order in test cricket. Opening in test cricket is a specialized job and its a tough job.
