Should make use of spare part technology for suspect body parts. They could replace Mark Wood's heel while they're at it.

Hopefully, Stoneman will perform well at Sydney to cement his position as an opener. He has guts and no lack of solid technique under pressure of the best bowling lineup we have seen recently in test cricket - Starc, Hazlewood, Cummins and Lyon would embarrass most top orders in test cricket in Australian conditions.

Of course, the MCG wicket was more reminiscent of a chief executive’s wicket at Lord’s of recent memory, though Stoneman only got to bat once.

Arenít there parallels between the way Carberry played 4 years ago versus Johnson and Harris (in my opinion making up a tougher attack than Starc et al) and Stoneman this time out? Both showed good ticker v the quick bowlers but essentially they donít have enough runs in them. That said I would give Stoneman at least the New Zealand series.

Yes, I think that would be a reasonable comparison. Carberry was rather unfortunate not to get more opportunities afterwards.

If there are parallels with Carberry then we should definitely stick with Stoneman. Carberry was one of the only players to do OK in Australia last time out and dropping him as soon as the series finished was absolutely stupid, as shown by the twelve thousand far worse openers who were then successively picked and dropped in his place.
