Not ideal when you are opening the batting. His last 4 dismissals brought back nightmarish memories of the ashes - he's stiff front foot is causing him all sorts of problems. May be he should bat lower down the order if he cant handle the swinging ball.
He does have a habit of starting brightly and fading. He did it in the Ashes, getting a century then nothing much else.l.
Cook is an opener, no way should he move down the order. He'll just have to iron out the problems and hang in there.
