Good analysis, but in few cases I disagree.

Farhad Reza:
Bowling is useless, not good enough even to be a regular #5 bowler against good sides. Ability to play substantial innings is not proven yet. If he wants to be regular in the Test/ODI side, he has to compete for a place of batsman.

By no means a #4 batsman, in bowling so far only good against minnows. It's very hard to tell what will he become within next couple of years. One thing is certain, he's no (insert your favorite allrounder here) in the making.

He wasn't supposed to be a great ODI opener anyway. Has slimmer chance to do well in ODIs against better teams. But in tests his temperament will be useful.
