No. He isn't a serious contender for a test place, at this stage of his career at least.

I don't mind admitting I am wrong. I still think vince will be quality.

Kp's scoring rate was a joke in those circumstances wasn't it? Are you seriously comparing an odi scoring rate with a slog for declaration? Haha. You are getting desperate.

Roy is not in the picture because he is a middle order batsman and we are covered there.

For what it's worth I was listening to the KP innings and he was reverse sweeping the seamers whilst standing upright (I was trying to imagine what that would look like but I failed). I don't think he was preserving his wicket, just that the captain had put most people out on the boundary at that stage compared to earlier in the innings.

Very early days and against 2nd division bowling.

Yes but why bring reality into this discussion? It doesn't look like a Surrey win was ever on the cards anyhow.

As am I and I assume GBG is of his. Someone needs to take up the mantle.

That's ok. We have Stokes. They have a job share at the moment. It's either Stokes or Woakes but not both of them in the team.
